How to cook Stuffed Squid

This Stuffed Squid Recipe is a whole squid stuffed with shrimp and crab meat combinations covered with a tomato wine sauce. This seafood dish is a popular Italian dish, we first tried this in a popular Italian restaurant in Bacolod,  we tried to cook at home and the result is awesomely delicious.  If you are a seafood lover then you should try this recipe too.

Take note that when cooking this seafood dish the two most important elements for success are:

  • Make sure to buy the freshest seafood.
  • Do not to overcook the seafood, especially the squid.

If you can do these tasks, I’m sure you will have a mix of tender shrimp with soft buttery lump crab meat and  covered by light fresh squid in a tomato wine sauce. You can serve this dish for a special occasion and everyone will surely love it.
