Adobong Pusit (Squid Adobo) Recipe

The all-time favorite adobo is a classic easy-to-cook dish that almost every Pinoy would love to eat. Philippines, being an archipelago, boasts of this dish that contains a flavorful taste and aroma. Each region has its own unique version, from the main ingredient, choice of meat, and how-to’s of cooking. However, these differences end up to only one feedback – greatly delicious!

Adobong posit is my personal favorite. It never fails to please my taste buds, and I always feel like I can eat it every day. Pusit (squid) is very rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, hence it is very much recommended for those health conscious people out there. Just be aware of your allergies. This favorite meal can be prepared as easy as two steps.

You may also consider the choice of squid when buying in the market. Excellent for this dish are the smaller varieties since their meat will be tender and juicy. Their ink also adds flavor to your adobo once cooked. Bigger squids are best for calamares (fried breaded squid). Lastly, always check the odor (it should not have a fishy smell) and the appearance (squid eyes should be clear) before buying your squid. They will really affect your dish.

Hope that helps! Happy cooking and eating!
