Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 dried shiitake mushrooms
10 dried lily buds
250g minced pork
25g cellophane noodles
1 garlic clove, crushed
3 spring onions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon fish sauce
500g squid
80ml peanut oil, for frying

Method

  1. Soak the mushrooms and lily buds in separate bowls with hot water for 20–30 minutes, then drain well. Cut off and discard the mushroom stems and thinly slice the caps. Discard any tough portions of the flowers and chop finely.
  2. Soak the cellophane noodles in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain well.
  3. Put the mushroom, lily bud, pork and ½ cup of the noodles in a bowl and toss to combine. Add the garlic, spring onion, salt, pepper and fish sauce, to taste, using your hands to thoroughly combine.
  4. Clean each squid, removing the ink sac, discarding the head and reserving the tentacles. Rinse the tubes under cold running water to remove the skin. Drain well. Chop the tentacles finely and mix with the pork mixture.
  5. Stuff the pork mixture into each squid tube, packing it in firmly, and securing the end with a short toothpick to seal.
  6. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Cook the squid for 5 minutes. Prick the squid with a fine skewer, turn and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes, or until cooked through — you may need to cook for a little longer if the squid are large.
  7. To serve, cut each stuffed squid into thin slices and arrange on a bed of lettuce leaves.
