Giant Squid

Giant Humboldt Squid

Having worked with the same fish purveyor for over 10 years they kind of have an idea what I like. So when Chris called me from ports seafood and said he had giant squid from Humboldt averaging 30lb each I jumped at the chance to get them. Once I had this giant squid at the restaurant I was amazed at how big it really is, it really makes me not want to go swimming.  Chris later explained to me that they are caught when there is a current shift and they come up from warmer waters. To keep thing easy on how to cook this giant squid I have included a photo guide.
