These whole squid are within the Loligo classification, meaning they have a smaller, more delicate texture than Illex calamari, but provide a sweet, nutty flavor rather than a savory, buttery flavor.
Cooking Tips & Recipes
Whole squid is simple and easy to clean. Start by pulling the head apart from the body with a firm and slightly rotating motion. Carefully remove the ink sac from the innards of the squid. Then, cut the tentacles from the head by slicing just below the eyes. Remove the beak from the tentacles by squeezing the connective tissue on the top of the tentacles. Remove the cartilage from the inside of the body, then remove the skin from the body for a more appealing appearance. Clean the inside of the body making sure to remove any residual innards.
