First the hot peppery king prawns, now proceeding with an ongoing series of some of our favourite spicy chilli inspired dishes, make way for the salt and chilli squid. A traditionally Hong Kong style concoction, but inspired with the twist of Hunan spice, this salty chilli seafood dish has a mix of eclectic and traditional flavour. At Naturally Chinese, we use a potato starch (gluten free) which brings a new twist onto a typical tempura or deep fried style dish. Red chili peppers, roasted garlic and green onion make the perfect complement taste and sight wise.It creates a fluffy, soft crunch and a delectable aroma perfect as an appetizer to share, or even a starter for one.
With the onset of Spring, it makes a wonderful addition to a range of fun and flavoursome dishes to pair with light wines, even prosecco. It also is one for all seasons being great to pair with a Summer wine and deliciously comforting with a warming wine in winter. The squid fillet can be found on our appetizer/ starter section.
This will be one of our highlights during the Surbiton Food festival. A must try if you haven’t had it before. Remember to pair it with our sides of greens. Makes for a burst of natural colour and great taste of home cooking!
