Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
750g whole squid
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 red chilli, sliced
3 spring onions, sliced, plus extra finely shredded to garnish
1 tbsp tamarind paste
1 lemongrass stem, white part only, finely sliced
250ml chicken stock
5 Thai basil leaves, shredded
steamed rice, to serve

Spice Paste
2 red chillies, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2cm piece fresh ginger, chopped
3cm piece fresh turmeric, chopped
3 spring onions, chopped
1 tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp shrimp paste

Method
  • Score the underside flesh of the squid in a fine criss-cross pattern and cut into large pieces. Place in a bowl with the lime juice and season well.



  • To make the spice paste, grind the chilli, ginger, garlic, turmeric, spring onion, tomato, coriander seeds and shrimp paste in a food processor.

  • Heat the remaining oil and add the spice paste, tamarind concentrate and lemongrass. Cook, stirring, over medium heat for 5 minutes.



  • Return the squid to the pan and add the stock. Season with pepper and add the basil. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.



  • Serve immediately, garnished with the extra spring onion.
