How To Prepare Your Dried Squid

First off, make sure that you have ample cooking area for this squid. Once you have the squid in front of you, then chop it up into chunks. Cutting it up in this way will make sure that it will cook a lot quicker.

You should also make sure that you snip off all the tough bits with scissors.

Now take the squid and soak it in clean cold water for about half an hour. This is a great way of getting rid of all the pollutants, as well as softening up the meat ready for cooking.

If you tuck into dried squid without preparing, then you can expect to expend extra calories chewing this tough meat.

Remove the squid from the water and pat them down with a kitchen roll. After it is dry and you have removed the excess grime, then rinse it thoroughly with cold water again to remove the last of the dirt.

Now that you’ve prepped your squid adequately, it should be ready for cooking. Get your pan and oil ready and fire up the hob.

How To Cook Your Dried Squid

  1. Get a thick pan and rub oil over the underside. This is to make sure that your squid will not stick to the bottom of the pan. Make sure that the oil is evenly coated to avoid your squid burning.
  2. Warm the pan to medium heat first to get the oil nice and slick. Once you have put your squid into the pan, then turn the heat up to full. Make sure that you are turning the squid regularly, tossing it so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
    • We would recommend using a thick cast-iron skillet, as this will make sure that the heat is distributed nice and evenly.
  3. Make sure that the oil in the pan is crackling. Fry the squid for around 5 mins. You might have to fry it slightly longer if it is in larger chunks. Keep turning your squid so that it doesn’t burn. You’ll want to make sure that the edges of your squid are golden brown.
  4. Once your squid is completely cooked, then transfer it to a paper towel and dab off the excess oil. If you don’t have enough room in your frying pan to cook all your squid, then we would recommend cooking them in smaller batches.
