Squid mantle and tentacles are parboiled for a few minutes and seasoned with Rice Vinegar, Ginger, sesame oil, rice wine and sweeteners to make this tangy seafood salad. Sea vegetables, wild mushrooms and greens from the Asian garden add nutrients to this tasty dish, along with the inimitable flavor of squid. Bamboo shoots and lettuce ribs are pickled to intensify flavor. Mixed together, you have a Chinese-style squid salad fit for an emperor!
Ingredients in our Calamari Salad include the exotic Kikurage Mushroom, a tofu-like ingredient that absorbs and reflects added seasonings. A wood fungus exclusive to ancient and modern Asian cuisine, it’s also called “Cloud Ear” or “Jelly Mushroom.” This delicate mushroom mimics the chewy, slightly crunchy texture of squid. You will find this mushroom in hot sour soup as well as Asian stir fried dishes. Japanese healers claim it cures heart disease and prevents stroke by improving blood circulation.
In Japanese, Chuka indicates the recipe originated in China; Ika means squid; and Sansai means mountain-grown vegetables.
SushiNut Calamari Salad arrives frozen and ready to serve when thawed, with the perfect blend of ingredients. Although it will keep for several months frozen, use your refrigerated calamari salad within 7 days of thawing.
