The Giggling Squid Cookbook: Tantalising Thai Dishes to Enjoy Together
About this deal
The recipes are straightforward, easy to follow and if there are any ingredients you can’t find in a hurry, there’s a handy list of substitutions and suggestions as well. In general I add extra spices to all recipes as they always seem more flavourful that way, but all the base is there to guide you to a great tasting dish. It’s straightforward enough and as Thai ingredients are now very easy to source in the big supermarkets you should have no difficulties in finding them unless it’s the more bespoke ingredients like galangal or Thai Basil. LemonSalt have taken every care to ensure that the information is accurate but we strongly recommend that you read the product packaging before use.

Octopi have been shown to use tools, cuttlefish can camouflage in an instant and squid giggle if you give them ten-tickles (I’m very, very sorry).

There’s something so immediately satisfying and a little theatrical about eating with your hands and these little nests are best enjoyed without cutlery.
