I was so excited to find this product at The Cruelty Free Shop a few weeks ago. It is something different and I believe it will be much more appreciated when summer is finally here. One thing though, just like many other Asian products on the market, Vegan Calamari comes with poor cooking instructions. So I improvised a little…
Cooking instructions on the pack: Remove from packaging. Fry in a little oil on medium heat for 3 -5 minutes, turning once.
Cooking instructions from my kitchen: Cook from frozen. Remove from packaging and break the pieces up. Cook in a frying pan with reasonable amount of oil. The product is not suitable for shallow frying. So the level of oil should cover at least half of the rings. And turn them more than once until the right colour is achieved.
Ingredients: Algae gum, corn starch, potato starch, vegetable oil, sugar, salt, breadcrumb.
Country of origin: Malaysia
