Did you know?

Squid have three hearts. Their two smaller hearts serve their gills, while the larger one pumps blood to the rest of the body. All three are faintly greenish in colour.

Weymouth is one of the few fisheries in the UK where squid can be caught by rod and line. It might not be the prettiest to look at, but delicious, fresh squid has rich, creamy-coloured flesh, a firm texture and a mild, delicate, slightly sweet flavour, enjoyed the world over.

Our fresh squid ring calamari are prepared in the shop and available per 500g. Allow approximately 250g per person.

FLAVOUR: Mild | TEXTURE: Firm | ALLERGENS: Contains Squid

Weymouth squid ‘appear’ in October and disappear again by February. We land everything we can during the winter months and freeze it for use throughout the year. But depending on what’s been caught each year, we tend to run out by May and in the summer source our squid direct from the market at Peterhead.

Squid is best cooked either very quickly, grilled, barbecued or deep-fried, or very slowly, in a stew with wine and vegetables. Anything in between and the texture tends to get a little chewy. As for pairing, squid works well with just about anything, from spicy Asian flavours to garlic, lemon and herbs.

To prepare a whole squid: pull apart the body from the tentacles; cut the head from the tentacles just below the eyes, and discard; squeeze out the beak and remove the quill from the body (it looks like a piece of plastic); cut the fins from the body. Once cleaned the tentacles, body and fins are ready to cook.

You can’t beat a classic: rings of squid, coated in a crunchy batter, deep fried for a couple of minutes, and eaten with range of dips.

Best eaten immediately. 

Store in the fridge between 0ºC-5ºC, and eat within 2-3 days. 

Do not refreeze.
