What Exactly Is Calamari
Squid is often referred to as calamari. Although hundreds of species are available, only a few dozen are used for food consumption. It’s related to an octopus, but it is more appealing, even though there is no difference.
How Does This Food Taste Exactly
The meat of squid is firm and mild. It has a sweet, almost nutty flavor. While fried squid should be firm and chewy, it should not be rubbery. Fried calamari complements salt, lemon, and dipping sauces well. However, it can also be seared and garnished with parsley and garlic or seasoned with salt and pepper.
Use Proper Storage Tips
Squid freezes quite well when compared to other types of seafood. You can either buy it frozen from the store or clean and freeze it yourself. It will keep for several months if kept solidly frozen. You can keep it in the fridge for a few days after you cook it. If you plan on deep-frying it, you should try to eat it as soon as it’s done.
