Hello everyone, the New Year we eat seafood dry goods with a lot of it? A few fans asked me why he watched a lot of videos, all said ten minutes can soak squid, cuttlefish, then the results, it must be soaked can not be la, 10 minutes to soak good squid, basically impossible, of course, in addition to chemical supplies, there are people who say that the white stuff on the squid will cause cancer? With these problems and rumors, today I have reorganized this issue of the article to explain those things about squid, very complete, complete to what extent?
First, how should the squid be selected, which some squid can not buy
Second, there is a layer of white stuff on the squid, many people say it will cause cancer, so what is the truth?
Third, of course, the two methods that interest you most, 2 hours to quickly soak the squid.
Fourth, 30 years old store universal old brine recipe, whether it is squid, chicken claws, duck claws, duck head, beef, etc. can be brined
This is just I used 2 hours to soak good squid, toughness is very good, I share 2 ways today, only within 2 hours to soak four, five times the size.
Do not rush to understand first, that kind of squid must not buy!
This kind of squid, are you often buy? Then like this squid is usually added nitrite or hydrogen peroxide soaking and other chemical materials, the real eat more prone to cancer is this kind of squid.
Especially when we buy, if the squid has the smell of ammonia on it, what is the smell of ammonia? It is the smell of haram, then this type of squid, of course, can not eat, eat more instead of hurting the body.
So usually when you buy squid must buy lightly dried squid, and its dryness should reach eighty to ninety percent, the production process of squid is generally drying or natural sun-drying, so its dryness is usually dry, the greater the humidity, the heavier the salt, the flesh is black, soft this squid is usually not fresh and poor quality squid.
What is the white cream on top of squid and dried seafood?
Some people say that this layer of white frost on the squid is carcinogenic substances, will produce aflatoxin, so that the deterioration, mold, this is completely unfounded rumors, if you often eat dried seafood will find that seaweed, shrimp, sea cucumber, or other dried seafood above, you can see a layer of white stuff, its name is called mannitol, seafood out of the water, because with alkaline substances, after weathering the formation of mannitol.
You do not underestimate the layer of white cream, it is beneficial and harmless to the human body, the medicinal value of mannitol is very high, can relieve fatigue, detoxification and swelling, but also to eliminate the liver black and heavy toxins, usually the white cream is also only a light layer attached to the squid, rather than very thick. So the kind of industrial salt or hydrogen peroxide soaked in front is completely two concepts.
Well back to the topic, then today to share two quick soak squid practice, 2 soak approach, the time is about the same, specific how we choose, read the article I believe you will have the answer.
The first method to use is that everyone at home must be edible baking soda, large hotels soak dried seafood, with baking soda, but the use of baking soda but there is a delicate.
A spoonful of baking soda added to half a bowl of warm water, with warm water to dissolve after the effect will be effective, many people's mistake is to use cold water, baking soda regardless of catalytic anything, or to do cleaning agents, you need to use warm water to dissolve.
Then soak squid with this water is also the same warm water, almost 50 to 60 degrees is the most appropriate, do not use boiling water to soak squid, which will make it become hard and wood. Then pour in the warm water melted baking soda, so it's done, but also want faster, you need to cover the top with a heavy thing, with baking soda soak dried seafood cons, in the taste back to a certain trade-off.
Pour in a spoon or so of white vinegar, followed by half a spoon or so of sesame oil, the same with 50-60 degrees warm water, although white vinegar is also an alkaline substance, but the acetic acid it contains can soften the squid, the purpose of adding sesame oil: because the substance inside the sesame oil has a softening effect, and the air inside the water can be completely isolated.
How about after more than two hours of the 2 approaches?
Baking soda soak: edible baking soda bubble this one is still so fast, with white vinegar and sesame oil this one is actually not bad, the size of the bubble are similar. The piece soaked with baking soda is very very soft, and the defect of soaking with baking soda is also relatively obvious, that is, there is basically no toughness in cooking, and the squid basically has no taste.
Sesame oil, white vinegar soaking: some people may worry about the squid soaked in sesame oil will have a taste, here after soaking with cold water to rinse basically no more. But today I was more surprised by the sesame oil with white vinegar, I did not expect it to be bigger than soaking with baking soda. The best way to eat squid is to have toughness and chewiness, not the larger the soaking is the better, just right is really good.
