Adobong pusit sa gata or squid adobo with coconut milk in a white serving dish

If you love adobo dishes and all the ways you can make it, this is one adobo recipe you need to learn to cook. It’s a squid adobo that’s got gata, or coconut milk. 

Make sure to save the ink sac when you prepare your squid, because the powerful flavor of the squid and its ink is complemented by the adobo seasonings! But what tempers all of these flavors is the gata or coconut milk. Its creamy flavor will transform this recipe from an otherwise normal adobong pusit to one that’s more mellow but still flavorful.
