How to Cook Thai Grilled Cuttlefish (Pla Meuk Yang) – Asian BBQ Series

A simple recipe for your barbecue – in this video, I used cuttlefish, though squid would work just as well. This is the third in my series of Asian BBQ Recipes, and it’s adapted from David Thompson’s Thai Food.


200g cuttlefish or squid
1 Tbsp fish sauce
3 Tbsps coconut cream
1 Tbsp coriander leaves

Sauce –
1 coriander root
Pinch salt
3 garlic cloves
1 bird’s eye chilli
1 Tbsp white sugar
2 Tbsps lime juice


  1. Score criss-cross patterns on cuttlefish, then cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. Add fish sauce and coconut cream and set aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Blend sauce ingredients in blender.
  4. Brush hotplate with oil, then grill cuttlefish until done, drizzling with coconut cream as it cooks.
  5. Remove from heat, sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve with sauce.
