Number of Servings: 2

1/2 Kilogram(s) Small fresh squids
1/2 Cup(s) Native vinegar
10 Cloves garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Onion, sliced
2 Tomatoes, chopped
Extra salt and pepper for
1 Teaspoon(s) Vet-sin, monosodium
Got down my single Filipino cook book and found this little gem. My
grasp of Tagalog is non-existent but I'd guess that the name
translates as "Squid Adobo". At any rate, it's squid stewed in
vinegar. I assume that the reference to "native vinegar" refers to
nipa sap vinegar (sukang paombong). The bottle I have is a milky
looking vinegar that tastes pretty much like any vinegar so I imagine
that you have some latitude on what type you can use. For those of you
who have never tried it, Filipino food is an intriguing cuisine that
has elements of Southeast Asian, Chinese and Mexican or Spanish
influences. It has everything from spring rolls (lumpias) to rellenos
dishes. Wash the squids very well. Remove the long thin membrane in
the head and slit the eyes to bring out the ink. Place the squids in
a saucepan with vinegar, 6 cloves garlic crushed, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook slowly until the squids are tender. Cut cooked squids
into 1/2 inch slices crosswise. Crush remaining garlic and saute in a
little lard in another pan. Add the onion and tomatoes and cook until
tomatoes are very soft. Add the squids and the liquid in which they
were boiled. Simmer for 7 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and
vet-sin. From "Favorite Filipino Recipes" by Pat Limjuco Dayrit. Paul
