Chrysanthemum Squid

My son told me he like his rice with Furikake. So I mix some to his rice today and I added some “Chrysanthemum” on it too. This is not all that he is eating. There are other side dish lah. Cannot be without vegetables.

  • Squid, clean and skin removed
  • Baby corn, diced for garnishing
  • Salt
  • Butter

How to do it:
  1. Cut squid into 4cm thick ring.
  2. Slice thinly on 3cm of the ring.
  3. In a pot of boiling water, add 1 teaspoon of salt.
  4. Blanch the squid for about 5 minutes or till cook.
  5. Drain and set aside.
  6. In a pan, add a teaspoon of butter.
  7. Sauté the baby corn and Squid (for flavouring).
  8. Remove.
  9. Place a piece of babycorn in each squid.
  10. Serve.

You can add batter and fry the squid instead of blanching it. Because my son is eating, I prefer to blanch so it’s not tough.
