Calamari, or squid, might seem like an intimidating ingredient in the kitchen. In reality, with a little practice it couldn’t be easier to cook. Whether you’re cooking it on the grill in the summer or deep-frying a portion of the Italian favorite calamari, the secret is to make sure not to overcook the tender morsels, which yield a chewy, delicious meat when cooked correctly. Calamari also has a naturally delicious flavor. Simply season with some fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and you have a clean, yummy appetizer or entree.
