  • About

Squid Cocktail is another of those popular foods you can buy and enjoy near the beach in the Caribbean city of Cartagena de Indias. One of the tricks with squid is to either keep it over heat for less than one minute, or let it cook for a long time, about one hour, to delight in a soft and not chewy meal. After that trick is taken care of, you can enjoy one of the most versatile and delicious foods that is readily available year-round.
