Deep Fried Honey Baby Squids – 蜜汁小鱿鱼

What’s better than a squid? Baby squids of course. They are all bite-sized so you can enjoy the full FLAVOURS of a whole squid in every mouthful.

But that’s not all, imagine a mouthful of crunchiness coated in a sweet honey and soy based sauce. It’s amazing how two simple ingredients can create such a delectable sauce!

Thanks to our friends from Dish The Fish for recommending us the baby squids that we used for the video. These are really hard to find even at the wet market! Do check them out at
