Rellenong Pusit ( Stuffed Squid)

Rellenong Pusit literally translates to Stuffed Squid: “relleno” is the Spanish word for stuffed. This recipe calls for large squids to be stuffed with onions, tomatoes & green pepper. Others prefer cooked ground pork as their stuffing but I prefer vegies for a health reasons. This is best served with soy sauce & lemon dip on steamed rice or as “pulutan”  with coconut wine or commonly called “Tuba” in our locality.









  • 1 kg. kilo of fresh squid (large sized) clean & remove tentacles
  • 2 red onions chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 3 tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of kalamansi juice (or lemon juice)
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 table spoons of cooking oil

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Mix the cooking oil, lemon or calamansi  juice and soy sauce. Pour this over your squid and mix evenly.
  2. In another bowl mix the onion, green pepper, tomatoes and parsley. Insert this inside your squid.
  3. Close the opening with a toothpick.
  4. Grill  over medium fire for about ten minutes or depending on the size. Do not overcook. (If desired deep frying can also be applicable.)
