this can be great if no MSG added. instead of MSG, why not try a pinch of sugar? it tastes better and its healthier.. squid is my fave among sea foods.. and i always cook it if i have lots of time at home..

Recipe ideas can be great with love and care felt while cooking. I can't imagine how much my love one's will love this dish!
