Mediterranean Squid offer pure, tender white flesh and sweet natural flavor. These Baby Squid are cleaned and ready to use in a variety of applications. Given their adorably small size, they lend themselves to being an ingredient rather than a feature protein.
Squid and Cuttlefish can be a bit tougher than an octopus, but the meat has a smoother texture, and when cooked right, is tender and firm. Cuttlefish has more flavor than squid, but not as pronounced as octopus. The meat of squid and cuttlefish easily soak up marinades and sauces and can be prepared in numerous ways. The key to getting a tender texture as opposed to a chewy one is by cooking hot and fast (grilling, sautéing, deep frying) or braising low and slow. Great for stews, paellas and risottos. These are low-calorie proteins, low in fat, high in iron and full of vitamins and minerals.
Each baby squid is ~ 2" long. Two 2.2 lb bags. Origin: Mediterranean Sea
