Sweet and Spicy Squid

This is an impromptu dish.

I cooked paella last night for our father's day dinner then I had this extra squid. I planned to throw in everything in my paella but I remember one cooking show I saw on tv, dont over dump everything. So okay....what do do now with the extra squid rings.

Calamari...pwede kaso, its a messy thing to do and Im not in the mood to cook that.
I checked my kitchen for any idea. Then I saw a bottle of Thai chilli sauce.

So ayun, an idea popped! I made this Sweet and Spicy Squid.

To do this, you will need the following...

5 pieces of squid. cleaned and cut into rings
2 onions quartered
1 green bell pepper
3/2 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
Thai chilli sauce

Then in a sauce pan, drizzle some cooking oil, saute the quartered onion, do this for a minute. Remove the onion from the pan and set aside. On the same pan, put half cup of water, then sugar. You can add sugar if you want to be sweeter. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture thickens. As the Thai chilli sauce. Its up to you how much chilli sauce you will add. Then throw in the squid rings. Stir until all the squid rings are coated with the sauce. Dont over cook.

You can do this also serve this dish on a sisig plate. When the spicy squid is ready. Get your sisig plate then place it on a stove. Heat it for 5 minutes or so. Make sure that the sisig plate is hot, hot, hot ha! :)Then put the sweet and spicy squid.

Remove from heat and serve with rice (pwede rin with beer)
