Every squid has been cleaned for you so that you can cook it right away. It’s soft and juicy. Simply remove them from the bag, scrape the cartilage, and cut them into strips before gently frying them in oil or butter till they are opaque. These squid tubes are best eaten when sautéed or deep-fried.
Cooking squid this way is simple and fast, and it looks fantastic at a family dinner, so try our Salt and Pepper Squid recipe and impress your guests! Squid tubes range in length from 5 to 8 inches.
Squid has a variety of flavours, ranging from mild to rubbery. Squid has a subtle taste that is comparable to shrimp and lobster when cooked over medium heat. When it’s overcooked, it gets rubbery, losing its distinct flavour as well as the flavour of the dish it’s served in.
Squids are not at great risk of being overfished since they are slow-growing species and at alternate stages attain sexual maturity, enabling some regulation on their reproduction. Squid farming is well developed in several countries, such as Japan, the European Union, the United Kingdom, and Australia. All of our squids are harvested and handled sustainably at Frozen Fish Direct.
