Yield: 6 Servings
|5 pounds||Uncleaned Squid or 2 1/2 pounds of Cleaned Squid|
|1 tablespoon||Sesame Oil|
|Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper|
If you have bought uncleaned squid, clean it as follows: Remove the head with the tentacles from the body. Peel the thin outer membraned from the body. Pull the inner cartilage from the body (This is a single piece that looks like plastic). Discard but save the body. Cut the tentacles off below the eye and remove the hard pebble-like sphere that remains inside the tentacles. Reserve the tentacles. Wash the body thoroughly. It should remain in a bag shape after washing.
Rub the squid with the sesame oil and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside while you prepare the slaw.
See Asian Slaw for recipe.
