Squid with seasonal California produce.

Step 1: Clean and chop squid

Pull the head/tentacles away from the body. Scoop any remaining guts out of the body, and remove the thin plasticy quill. Rinse the body inside and out, then slice into approximately 3/4-1 inch thick rings.

Squeeze behind the head to extrude the beak, and remove it from the center of the tentacles. Cut just below the eyes to free the tentacles, then add them to the bowl with the body rings.

Tentacles are the best part. No, really- they're fantastic.
Mmmm! Mm-Mmmm! It looks wonderful! I just wish I could visit to try it! My wife would never let this in our house, even if I prepare it! God! It looks good!
This is one of the most delicious things i've ever eaten in my life. I'm Taiwanese/Japanese, and we always get the good food. Your wife is missing out.
a manly meal indead! my wife feels the same way...
I can't begin to tell you how good this looks! I learned to like squid as a kid in Hawaii (father was stationed at the naval airbase on Barbers Point) We lived a block from the beach and we often caught supper there. Thanks for sharing this with a great Instructable!
