Cookbook Countdown #12 : Kylie Kwong's Stuffed squid with lime and chilli

For this month, you may use those cookbooks which you have shared at Cookbook Countdown, from January 2016 onwards. So, in December : You may select a new chosen cookbook to cook or bake from as usual, OR you may re-visit all the cookbooks that you have used at Cookbook Countdown from January to November 2016. There might be a recipe or two that you've been eyeing to try, from some of those books from the months before. December is the time to share them. Let's browse thru those books again! Or cook from a new book, the choice is yours!
From pages 138-139 of Kylie Kwong's
Heart and Soul
adapted from KK's recipe:
4 small squids
chinese cooking wine, olive oil
salt and pepper
spring onions for garnish (I forgot!)
diced prawns, diced kurau
chopped garlic and ginger
salt, olive oil, sugar
diced shallots, sliced coriander stems and roots,
preserved lemon rind,
light soy sauce, olive oil
garlic, sliced coriander stems and roots,
chopped garlic
red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
salt, palm sugar
lime juice and fish sauce
I steamed the stuffed squid, then baked them for a couple of mins
served with fine rice noodles
I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
I am cooking from Kylie Kwong's earlier book 'Heart and Soul'
from her TV cooking show days, which I enjoyed.
These are all I have collected, there are two more books that 
are missing from my bookshelves!
and she is also available at FB!
