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