Cooking Tips

The secret to tender squid is to cook it either quickly or for around 30 minutes. Rings can be battered and fried; mantles can be stuffed and baked in a sauce. Don’t overcook, or squid will turn as tough as a pencil eraser (a couple of minutes are usually enough). If you do overcook, keep cooking for 20 minutes more, and it will become tender again. Braised or baked squid should be cooked this long anyway.
