Squids are a type of seafood that has a long and slimy body. This seafood is usually served cooked in many different ways. It is also one of the most popular dishes in Mediterranean countries like Italy.
The best way to serve a squid dish is to cook it so that it will be tender without getting rubbery or tough.
Squid is a common kind of seafood and it is usually served in the form of sashimi, stuffed, or deep-fried with accompaniment, or lemon butter sauce.
While preparing the squid, keep it in the freezer for about an hour. This will help to get rid of any bacteria that might be present on it. Then, clean the squid thoroughly with water.
If you are planning to serve the squid as sashimi, then you should slice thin pieces from it horizontally down its body and remove its head as well as its innards.
It’s better not to serve deep-fried squid at a formal dinner party because of health issues related to high cholesterol and calories.
