The squid looks so good!
Mmmmmm this looks so good. I love squid and octopus and it’s much harder to come by than other seafood for me. Really nice.
Love your squid! You cleaned and scoured it yourself? Very nicely done!
I am really hoping that our Asian supermarket carries the pineapple-cut squid. I would love to make this!
I love stir-fried tofu, so this sounds right up my alley. With the addition of squid, this must be so delicious and hearty.
This looks so tasty. I haven’t worked with squid in ages!
Well, our Asian grocery store does carry the pineapple-cut squid. We had this tonight for dinner, and it was pretty amazing. The squid was very tender (is that why they cut it that way?) and my favorite part was the tofu! Really nice dish – one we will make again soon!
