  • 2 large squid cleaned
  • 2 medium ripe tomato sliced into small cubes
  • 2 medium yellow onion sliced into small cubes
  • 2 thumbs ginger minced
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons annatto oil
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 lime or 2 pieces calamansi
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Arrange squid in a bowl. Add soy sauce, mirin, and lime. Marinate for 12 minutes.
  • Combine onion, tomato, ginger, salt, and ground black pepper in a bowl.
  • Stuff the marinated squid with scallions and onion mixture. Secure the head of the squid using a toothpick to prevent it from falling off.
  • Heat the grill and start to grill one side of the squid. Brush annatto oil on top of the squid. Continue to grill for 2 minutes.
  • Turn the squid over to grill the opposite side. Brush annatto oil on top. Continue to grill for another 2 minutes. Note: Flip the squid every 2 to 3 minutes until it gets fully cooked. Do not overcook squid as the texture will be tough and rubberlike.
  • Transfer to a serving plate. Serve with a dipping sauce composed of chopped onion, tomato, soy sauce, and vinegar.
  • Share and enjoy!
