The days of viewing clalamari as just a bait are long gone. Southern Calamari is the champion of squid and reknown around Australia as the best eating squid in the market. You will see many a fisherman braving the cold, wind and wet on a lonely jetty or breakwater trying his best to catch one.
A lot of effort for a feed I think. All you need to do is add 1kg of Southern Calamari to your cart and we will deliver it fresh and exactly as it comes from the sea direct to your door. No fuss.
Steam, poach, deep-fry, pan-fry, stir-fry, bake, braise, grill, barbecue, raw (sashimi). To be tender, Calamari must be cooked very quickly over high heat or very slowly over low heat. The flesh of the mantle, fins, arms and tentacles is suitable for a wide variety of preparations, whole tubes can be stuffed and baked, strips or rings can be dusted in seasoned flour and deep-fried or marinated and char-grilled or stir-fried. The ink can be used to flavour and colour risotto or pasta (though Cuttlefish ink is traditionally used).
