To prepare the buttered salted egg yolk crayfish, I use this mini hand held food chopper.

Not only is this mini handheld food chopper with three blades used to blend spices, it  is also good for blending small quantity of salted egg mixture.

Introduction:

This is one of my family favourite seafood and a “must order” menu when we dine at the seafood restaurant.

The flavourful bite sized whole baby squids in every mouthful coated with chilli sauce.

Simple and yet a delectable dish.

I was very lucky to find these fresh baby squids from the local market.

Salt and pepper

Chilli sauce, honey, superior dark soy sauce.

Set aside to dry.

The drier the baby squid, the crispier when deep fried later.

Season with salt and pepper and mixed well.

Coat the baby squid with rice flour.

Heat oil with cooking oil and deep fry the baby squid until golden brown and crispy.
