Inihaw na Pusit (Grilled Squid) Recipe



  • 1 kilo medium to large fresh squid
  • 1 bottle or 1 cup Sprite or 7-up (for extra sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp calamansi juice
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 medium-sized onions, sliced
  • 2 medium-sized tomatoes, chopped
  • salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Wash the squids well. Remove the long thin membrane in the head and body and slit the eyes to bring out the ink. Wash the body cavity well.
  2. Place the squid in the bowl. Add all the ingredients. Marinate for 1 hour.
  3. Stuff the squid cavity with a mixture of onions and tomatoes. Sew the ends of the squid so contents to prevent spillage.
  4. Before grilling, place the squid in barbecue sticks. Keep the marinade sauce.
  5. Grill the squid. Use the marinade sauce to baste the squid while it is being grilled.
  6. Don’t overcook the squid. Softer meat is easy to bite and juicier.
