Cooking Instructions

Score one side of the calamari steaks in a crisscross pattern. Slice thinly.

Place in the steamer and steam for 5 minutes, until just tender. Don’t steam it for too long as it may become tough and chewy.

TASTE’s take:
Eat this dish with brown rice and toss in a few roasted cashew nuts and steamed mangetout. Rings or baby tubes of calamari work just as well.
