Sustainable Cornish Squid
Squid is similar to octopus in many respects, and there’s a lot you can do with it, from fried calamari rings with a lemon aioli to stuffed squid with salsa!
Squid have elongated heads and thin torpedo-shaped bodies with a kite-shaped fin at the end. Ten tentacles are seen on all squid species. Except for the beak and gladius, the entire body of the squid is edible (the hard internal part also known as the pen or quill). As with traditional calamari, the body can be packed whole, split into pieces, or sliced into rings. Squid may be meltingly tender and utterly wonderful when cooked properly and with care – yet unintentional overcooking can leave it somewhat rubbery!
Squid is available fresh throughout the year, depending on the species. It ranges in size from small 5-7cm specimens to giant specimens of over 25cm. Few shellfish freeze as well as squid, making it a great product to keep on hand in the freezer for a quick seafood supper. Fresh squid can also be frozen before cooked to help tenderise the meat.
