How to Prepare

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine Halumi cheese, chopped shrimp, tomato, onion, egg, spices, and bread crumbs together.
  2. Dissolve MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon in 125 ml hot water, add and gently mix into the filling until the filling holds together when pressed between hands.
  3. Gently turn the squid tubes inside out. This will insure that the filling does not get squeezed out as the squid cooks.
  4. Stuff each of the six squid tubes with the filling making sure not to over fill the tubes, to insure even cooking of the stuffing.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan and fry stuffed squids for about 5 mins on medium high heat or until golden on all sides, reduce heat to medium, add water and the remaining MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon, cover and allow to steam for 10 mins.
  6. Add tomato, garlic and chopped parsley and cook for an additional 5 mins.
  7. Finish the dish with lemon juice a few minutes before serving.
  8. Slice tubes into rings and plate while pouring some of the sauce on top.
