Inihaw na Pusit (Grilled Squid)

INIHAW NA PUSIT. Grilled squid or inihaw na pusit is a Filipino dish of marinated squid stuffed with onions and tomato mixture then grilled over live charcoal. During Holy Week, it has been a practice among Roman Catholics to abstain from meat. Pork, chicken, beef, goat meat and other types of meat are usually out of the picture during this time of the year. Vegetables and seafood are commonly consumed unless you are fasting.
