Crispy Salted Egg-yolk Calamari, A Sinful Indulgence

yummy salted egg yolk squid calamari recipe
Fans of salted egg-yolks will certainly be in love with this Asian version of #Calamari; it's as good as it looks! Take pleasure in delighting your appetite as you sink your teeth into these crispy and salty squid rings, all enveloped in the sinful salted egg-yolks.

salted egg yolk prawns recipe
Few years back, I wrote a post on How To Make Your Own Salted Egg-Yolk Prawns and it's one of the most popular recipes in my blog with over 16,000 view counts! The colour of the prawns look slightly darker as I'd added Shichimi, to have a spicy kick. To cook these sotong (Malay name for squids), I'm using the same recipe for prawns with a small tweak, and ensuring the squid rings are completely dry since squids secrete water during cooking.

As I couldn't find fresh squids that day, I bought those vacuum-packed ones. Though beautifully cut, it's a waste to be coated with batter since the pattern will be disguised. The result wasn't too bad though, but I reckon fresh ones are gonna taste much better in terms of texture and flavour. I've only used half the packet, and will use the remaining for stir-frying with vegetables or making a salad.

cook for family salted egg yolk squid
The calamari was part of our dinner that evening:
Ingredients:
200g Squid rings
2 Salted duck eggs (cooked)
½ Chicken egg
½ Chilli (shredded)
¼ cup Plain flour
2 tsp Corn flour
Corn flour for coating
½ tsp Oil (for batter)
1 tsp Oil (for frying yolk)
1 tbsp Butter
Water (adjust according to consistency of batter)
Oil for deep-frying
Pepper and salt to taste

Method:
  • Coat squids with flour, salt and pepper.
  • Add chicken egg, plain and corn flour, oil, water and whisk into a batter. Adjust amount of water to ensure a smooth consistency. Dip squids into batter.
  • Heat oil and deep-fry squids till golden brown.
  • Remove and drain.
  • Mash the salted egg-yolks. Heat butter and oil. Add salted egg-yolk, chilli, and fry till “bubbles” formed. If you like, you can also add curry leaves.
  • Throw in squids and toss lightly, ensuring they’re thoroughly coated with yolk, and you'll get a Fragrant and Crispy Salted Egg-yolk Calamari! * Do not cook for too long or your squid rings will turn soggy instead of crispy. Enjoy!

  25. Oo calamari~ the pre cut squids looks nice.
    Any tips to make the squid stays soft? cause I usually end up with fried rubber bands lol

    Replies
    1. Simon, you can't cook squids for too long or they won't taste good! Hope this helps :)

      Delete
    2. hmm ya. I guess you gotta fried it with high heat. but then for me it usually turns out like rubber lol

      Delete
    3. Simon, insert a chopstick into the oil when it's hot & put in your squids in only when you see bubbles. Deep-fry them till golden-brown but don't fry it for too long. That should work! ^_^
