WATCH: How to Prepare Squid

Always make sure your squid is fresh!

 

Squid (pusit) is one of the healthiest, and most affordable seafood options in the market. Getting it ready to cook is actually a quick and simple process. Follow these steps to prepare squid for making delicious recipes:

 

1 Remove the head from the body.


2 Remove the beak from the tentacles.


3 Remove the ink sac.


4 The bottom part of the tentacles should be discarded.


5 Remove the cuttlebone from the body. This is the transparent, brittle internal structure in the body of the squid.


6 Always check for freshness. If the squid smells fishy, it means it’s not fresh.


7 Slow-cook the squid over low heat to keep its tenderness.
