How to cook Inihaw na Pusit

Inihaw na Pusit Recipe is simply flavored with sprite or 7up, soy sauce, garlic and calamansi or lemon juice, then quickly grilled to tender perfection.  Squid must be cooked fast over high heat or slow-cooked to achieve tenderness. Anything in between results in a chewy mess.

You can eat  Inihaw na Pusit as an appetizer, pulutan, as an entrée for lunch or dinner. When it’s as fresh as can be, marinated and grilled just right, inihaw na pusit makes a perfect pulutan choice to accompany beer or the best companion for a steaming hot cup of rice.

  • Place the squid in the bowl. Add all the ingredients. Marinate for 1 hour.
  • Before grilling, place the squid in barbecue sticks. Keep the marinade sauce.
  • Grill the squid for about 3 minutes each side. Use the marinade sauce to baste the squid while it is being grilled.
