Pla-Muk Nueng Ma-Now (Steamed Squid with Spicy Lime Sauce) Recipe-

  • 10 fresh squids (depending on size—about 1 pound, or 500 grams)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh Thai Hot Chili Peppers
  • 1/4 cup peeled and finely chopped garlic
  • 4 green onions, chopped fine – use all the white parts and first half of the green stalks
  • 1/4 cup Thai fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  1. Remove all inedible portions from the squid and wash them thoroughly.
  2. Fill a steamer halfway with water, and bring the water to a boil.
  3. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, place the squid in the steaming basket and steam it for 4 or 5 minutes—no longer than five.
  4. While the squid is steaming, place the lime juice, sugar, and fish sauce in a mixing bowl, and stir well until the sugar has all dissolved.
  5. Now add into the mixing bowl the chopped hot chilis, garlic, and green onions, and stir well, blending all the ingredients together, making your hot and spicy seasoning sauce complete.
  6. Once the squid is cooked, remove it from the steamer, allow to cool just to where you can carefully chop them into bite-sized pieces, and arrange the pieces in an attractive pattern on a serving platter.
  7. Ladle the seasoning sauce over the squid and serve your Pla-Muk Nueng Ma-Now immediately.
