    Well done! A nice Filipino dish. We use a bay leaf as well and don't overcook or the squid will be chewy!  -  20 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent recipe! To create a sweeter flavor use teriyaki sauce in place of the soy sauce and a mango/peach salsa in place of the tomato and onions.  -  06 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
