Squid in Tagalog is pusit.
Adobo is not merely the name of a dish. It is a cooking method that may involve braising, stewing, and even frying.
There are significant variations to the ingredients added to the basic ones of vinegar, garlic, and black pepper — such as coconut milk, soy sauce, and annatto water.
Furthermore, adobo isn’t limited to chicken and pork — the cooking technique of adobo can be applied to fish, shellfish and vegetables.
