"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Pork Mince (to fill you squid depending on how big of squid)
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
2 Large Whole Squid
1 Chicken stock cube
1 1/2 cup Water
2 Teasspoon mixed red and green chillis or to your spice
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Peel the garlic, put the pork mince and garlic together with the salt and pepper in a blender and blend it until the garlic is well mixed in.
Clean out the inside of the squid. Cut off the head.
Stuff the pork mince mix into the squid until its full.
Score cuts into the top of the squid - this will allow the steam to reach the meat to cook it.
Steam for 10 minutes.
Take a small pot pan, add water & the chicken stock cube and bring it to boil until the cube has dissolved.
Put the chilles in a blender and blend until they are fine pieces. If you prefer, you can cut them by hand, but they must be fine.
Add the chillis to the soup and remove the soup from the heat.
Place the steamed squid on a serving plate, squeeze the lemon juice over the top of the squid.
Pour the soup around the base of the squid, and place some of the chilli on the top for garnish

Personal Notes:
This dish is typical of a spicy Thai seafood dish. This dish is a different way of cooking it. The squid is stuffed with seasoned pork meat and steamed to cook it gently then served in a spicy soup.
