How To Make: Kam Heong Sotong

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of squid, cut into small ring pieces
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder for squid marinade
  • 2 tbsp of dried shrimps, first rehydrated then minced
  • 3-4 curry leaves
  • 1 stalk of Lemongrass, smashed
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, shredded
  • 5 dried chilis, rehydrated
  • 3-4 birds eyes chilis sliced (if you want less spicy, choose 1-2 of a larger chili instead)
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 1 handful scallions, chopped
  • ½ tbsp Tau Cheong (salted soybean paste)
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dark thick soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Sugar

Steps

  1. Prior to cooking, coat the squid in the arrowroot powder
  2. Heat up a wok (or saucepan if no wok available) on highest possible heat
  3. Add ~3 tbsp of oil to the wok once it's piping hot. We used coconut oil in our recipe but whichever oil you prefer here
  4. Add the arrowroot-coated squid to the wok and cook for just 1 minute, then remove from heat
  5. Wipe wok clean with a paper towel and add another 2 tbsp oil
  6. Start by adding the dried shrimps first and sauteeing until fragrant (roughly 1 min)
  7. Add your shallots, scallions, chilis, curry leaves, lemongrass, ginger. Toss all the ingredients around vigorously and continue to fry for 2 minutes together
  8. After several minutes, re-add the squid and toss around
  9. Add the sauce and water into the wok. However much water you add is totally up to you. If you want more sauce, then add more water, but add at least 2 tbsp to help spread the flavor of the sauce around the dish
  10. Take the wok off heat and serve immediately. Garnish with scallions

How we package your order?

The vacuum sealed seafood products and frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel are packed in a polystyrene box, so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.

We seal the polystyrene box with packing tape and hand it to our cold chain logistic to deliver to you.

What should I do when my order arrives? 

Remove your seafood products as soon as possible from the box, refrigerate all fresh items and freeze all frozen goods until you are ready to prepare them for consumption.

How is your frozen seafood handled? What is your freezing process?

Our fish and shellfish are processed and immediately frozen in our -45°c blast freezer. No chemicals or preservatives are added during the freezing or production process on any of our seafood items.

What is a -45 Degree Freezer and how does it affect the seafood when defrosted?

Blast freezing seafood products at a lower temperature keeps the wall of the cell intact, ensuring that water from the inside does not exit. When defrosted, the quality, texture, and appearance will remain completely intact just as if it were a fresh product.  

What is the proper way to defrost frozen seafood products? 

If you have received frozen seafood and placed it in the freezer, remove these items from the freezer and store them in the refrigerator for at least one day before you plan to serve it. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the product to properly defrost. Do not rush the defrosting process as it can affect the flavor and texture of your seafood.  

Why are some seafood products unavailable from time-to-time?

The availability of seafood products depends upon the season, weather, and other conditions that can affect a catch or harvest. Additionally, the harvesting of many seafood products is regulated in order to maintain a sustainable supply.
