Thai Basil Squid


Thai Basil Squid Recipe

Serves 2 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes


1 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoons Nam prik phao or Thai roasted chili paste
3 bird’s eyes chilies, lightly pounded
12 oz squid, cleaned and cut into rings, and pat dry with paper towels
1 teaspoon fish sauce or to taste
1 tablespoon lime juice
A big handful Thai basil leaves, stems removed


Heat up a wok with the oil. Add the roasted chili paste and bird’s eye chilies and stir fry until you smell the spicy aroma. Add the squid into the wok and stir to combine well. Add the fish sauce and lime juice. Stir a few times before adding the basil leaves. As soon as the leaves are wilted and the squid completely cooked, dish out and serve immediately with rice.

  1. Oh yes – my secret weapon to give amazing flavor. I keep two different kinds, chile garlic paste and chile garlic paste in sesame oil.

  2. I’m making this for tonight’s dinner. :D
