Squid Kim Chee was made by a Mr. Park in Hawaii. It was so good that it made a dent in my memory bank and I was so sad that it was no longer available. I decided to try replicate it and tried many different recipes to no avail. This is my latest which came the closest to Mr. Parks Squid kim chee.

Rub the squid with course sea salt and let it sit in a sieve for about 10 minutes. Pour the boiling hot water over the squid stir with chop sticks then quickly dunk into ice water to stop the cooking. Do not over blanch. It should be only slightly blanched.
