Tibs is a traditional Ethiopian dish, often made from beef or lamb. The word "tibs" refers to a style of preparation that involves pan-searing, sautéing or grilling meat, usually in a clay cooking pot known as a "shakla dist". The meat is typically cut into bite-sized pieces and is seasoned with a blend of spices, onions, and sometimes peppers. It is a common dish in Ethiopia and is often enjoyed in a communal setting, where people gather around a large platter and eat the meal with Injera.
However, in our recipe today, we're putting a unique spin on this Ethiopian classic by replacing the traditional beef with squid. This variation is perfect for pescatarians and seafood lovers alike, offering a creative blend of Ethiopian flavors with a seafood twist. The squid adds a unique texture and flavor to the dish that makes it truly unique.
