  • About

Cleaning squid can be unpleasant, with surprising revelations about their last meal – sometimes you find fish inside that completely fill the body and you can only marvel at how they were swallowed.

One of the nice things about this dish is the contrast between the texture of the meaty bodies and that of the crisp fried tentacles. If you can’t get shallots, just use onions in the same way.
