Squid and Pineapple Stir Fry

    20 minutes

    This is a wonderfully tangy and sweet Vietnamese stir fry with fresh squid. Be very careful not to overcook the squid or it will be tough.

    Recipe is fantastic. I disagree with a previous review that squid takes forever to clean though - it is very quick and easy. Cut the tentacles off just in front of the eyes. Remove the beak. Slide your finger down the back of the tube and break through the membrane holding the body in the tube. Pull the body and guts out. Slide your finger down under the cartilage and lift up - the cartilage will now come out. Slice the skin with a knife and peel off.  -  23 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Taste very good. My husband and I love it. I use pineapple crushed in a can and it still turned out so good.  -  19 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I agree this is a very good dish. Remember you can add tomatoes and cubed bell peppers in this dish too and garnish it with cilantro!  -  14 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
