Adobong Pusit Without Ink Recipe

No need to save the squid ink if there's none!

It’s not the squid ink that makes this adobong pusit so tasty! Leave it up to the strong flavors of the Filipino adobo ingredients to keep it from being your usual squid dish. In addition to the usual soy sauce-vinegar combo, this adobong pusit recipe uses tomatoes to give it extra flavor while the whole garlic cloves lend a more subtle garlic taste to the dish that’s not overpowering. 

The taste of squid still shines through despite no additional ink and makes this a well-loved dish that you will still enjoy.
