Salt Baked Squid

  • m

Hi everyone. Does anybody know how salt baked squid is prepared -- the Asian version like they serve at NY Noodletown in New York? I googled it and only came up with an Emeril recipe. It wasn't quite what I was looking for.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Actually, just googled "salt baked shrimp" and found a bunch. I'll just try to adapt it for squid. If anybody has some recipes they're partial to, I'd appreciate it.

      I make salty spicy squid but I fry them.

      I cut the squid into rings, toss in corn flour mixed with salt, five spice, and white pepper and fry it in wok for 2-3 minutes. Remove to a plate and spinkle chopped scallions and chilli on top.

        If you want to be really authentic add MSG.

        The squid is generally cut lengthwise, scored on the inside to prevent curling, dredged in flour or cornstarch with salt and chilis, then deep fried. Afterwards, some places stir-fry with diced peppers.
