squid ink linguine with squid

made a 5-course gourmet family dinner for mother’s day on 10.5.2020. ^^

5th course was squidink linguine with squid. 🙂

squidink linguine was one of 2 best dishes this evening, especially delicious…

prawn pasta in prawn bisque sauce was excellent too but squidink was better..

squidink was the best i made..the very flavourful chalky powdery texture & perfectly al dente pasta..simply excellent!

this though many good restaurants can do the same la..so even best still cannot say better than outside..

just brown 6 cloves of garlic in olive oil, add chicken stock and white wine and reduce, then add the squid ink sacs. i used squid ink taken from maybe 10-15 squids which i kept for use. seems not so easy to get squid ink in singapore? and expensive!

when serving, add squid seasoned with fish sauce and white pepper (i cross cut the squid), and cooked for couple mins, add pasta and 15g butter, off fire and tossed. add sweet basil to garnish.

a superb, delicious, simply the best squidink linguine with squid! 🙂

made a 5-course gourmet family dinner for mother’s day on 10.5.2020. ^^

4th course was prawn spaghetti in prawn bisque sauce. 🙂

the prawn pasta was excellent! ^^ pasta al dente perfect texture and the prawn bisque very tasty coating the pasta well, and prawns were plump, succulent & sweet. 🙂

i made the usual prawn stock frying prawn heads and shells in butter, then added cut carrots and water and boiled for 2 hrs.

to balance the flavours, and also to give some bulk, i fried garlic, shallots, red onions, then added red and yellow peppers, till softened. then i blended with the prawn stock together with the carrots. i added 2tbsp=30ml brandy. it was a very tasty  golden broth.

when serving the pasta dish, i browned 6 cloves of garlic in olive oil, added the sauce and bring to boil, added the prawns seasoned with fish sauce and white pepper, and cooked for couple mins, added pasta and 15g butter, off fire and tossed. added sweet basil to garnish.

voila! a very tasty, delicious prawn pasta dish! 🙂
