Salted Egg Squid

by Lisa K. on Thu, February 15, 2018

Salted egg flavoured squid or chicken has been a staple in Chinese restaurants’ menus but it blew up and became viral back in 2016. People still can’t get enough of it so why not cook this addictive dish for your reunion dinner?

Anything with salted egg is sedap!

Serves 3 - 4 people

Fry the squid in batches so it will crisp up better.

Don’t throw away the duck whites. Mash it up and it is great seasoning agent for fried rice.
