Characteristics

CharacteristicsSquid have a mild and slightly sweet flavor and firm texture.  We eat the tentacles, the tube (mantle) and the fins (wings). Squid can be enjoyed raw or cooked.

For Your Menu

MenuAlthough we all love deep fried calamari, there are so many other ways to enjoy squid! Grill it, bake it, stuff it, add it to seafood stews – get creative!

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffIf you have guests who say they don’t like seafood squid can be a good choice! It’s very mild flavored – give it a try!


For Your Retail Display

Retail Remind your customers to pick up some cocktail sauce if they are making fried calamari at home!
