I'd like to share a more practical way of cooking Squid Adobo. Cooking Squid Adobo is quick and easy. All you need to do is,
1. Saute the garlic, onion, and tomato in a saucepan or wok.
2. Add the cleaned squid and simmer until a sauce is formed (squid will produce its own liquid). You can add bay leaves if you want (not necessary).
3. Season with salt and pepper to taste and you are good to go.
If squid is fresh and still have ink, add the ink to the dish. If squid is long frozen and there's no more ink, that is okay.
Basically, Pilipino adobo consist of garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, pepper, and meat of animal or fish... In my squid adobo recipe, the souring agent of vinegar is replaced by tomato and the saltiness of soy sauce is replaced by salt.
