Squid, often called calamari, has tender flesh and mild flavor that is similar to cuttlefish. Squid easily picks up the flavor of what it’s being cooked in, which makes it well suited for marinades. The quick-cooking high heat methods of grilling, sautéing, or deep frying are best; as squid can become tough if overcooked. One of the most common methods of preparing squid is frying, and it has been a popular choice in restaurants since 1975.
