Notes :

1. Seafood is mostly fast-cooking. If you cook it for too long, it’ll be harder to chew and lost the juices as well.

2. You can always change it with squid or mussels. To discharge the smell, you can soak squid with milk or boil it for 30 seconds with water and ginger. For mussels, boil it with ginger, until the shell is open.
