Tips and Tricks

Do yourself a favor and buy yourself cleaned squid (calamari).  This way you don’t have to do this yourself.

Cleaning Calamari

But if you do get courageous, and you do buy whole squid, do the following to clean them:

  1. pull the head off
  2. cut the head off just below the tentacles but above the “eye”.
  3. keep the tentacles
  4. discard the eye
  5. reach into squid cavity and slide out the entails and remove the purple membrane.
