Calamari Cleaning: Simple and Quick Method

  • I usually buy the calamari frozen solid. After defrosting I clean the calamari by pulling the head from the body.
  • The tentacles are completely edible and you need some for the stuffing. Place your knife just underneath the eyes of the calamari and cut straight down.

  • Remove the cartilage. The cartilage almost looks like a super-thin shard of glass—it is inedible and must be removed.
  • Although the dark, spotty skin of the squid is edible, I remove it for a more appealing presentation. The skin will easily separate from the flesh to be peeled away.
