Baby Squid in Sweet Soy Sauce

The spring is still in the air, the cool air still lingering and the kids have been taking turns to be sick (still are as I am writing this blog). I wish for the warmer weather soon so they recover quickly and we go back enjoying outdoor playtime.

I cook this baby squid dish to add the variety in our meal plan that pretty much filled with chicken soup these days. A simple and quick meal that require few ingredients. Delicious and adventurous!


  • 250 gram baby squid (remove the ink)
  • 3 shallots ( thinly sliced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (thinly sliced)
  • 1 large chilli (sliced)
  • 3 cm ginger (thinly sliced)
  • 3-4 tbsp sweet soy sauce / kecap manis
  • Salt pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of cooking oil


  1. Heat up wok/ frying pan, add in the cooking oil, add shallots, garlic and ginger. Stir fry until golden and aromatic.
  2. Add in the squid, kecap manis, salt and pepper into the wok. Stir for 2-3 minutes. Don’t add any water as the squid will produce liquid when cook. Taste check. And serve with a bowl of hot rice. Enjoy!
