Stir-fry White Cuttlefish with Celery in Spicy Assam Sambal Sauce

One of my favorite seafood is squid or cuttlefish.I think both of them are almost the same species since they comes from the same family.Their size and appearance are slightly different but overall the texture are the same:chewy and rubbery. There are so many way I can cook squid or cuttlefish but I still prefer to stir-fry with assam sambal.


1 large white cuttlefish,clean and cut strip or crisscross
4-5 sleeves celery,washed and cut strip
1/2 bell pepper,slices thin

1 pack of ready made Assam Sambal paste for Seafood (any brand)
homemade chili (3-4 red chili pepper,4-5 cloves garlic,3 shallot peeled and grind)*optional*
1 tsp tamarind powder
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt or to taste
4 tbsp oil


1:Heat wok with oil at medium high heat.Add in assam sambal paste and homemade chili,sautee for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
2:Toss in celery,bell pepper,cuttlefish and all the seasoning,stir and mix well for 3-4 minutes.Do not overcook the cuttlefish,if not it's will be tough and hard.
3:Check the seasoning.Dish out and serve warm.
