Squid Tubes

Let's clear up some misconceptions; a calamari is definitely a squid, but not all squid are calamari. Squid varieties include several types of arrow squid, big fin reef squid and southern calamari. And the cuttlefish, while closely related to squid, is not a squid! 

Squid features in Greek cooking, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Chinese. Use it for stir-fries or pasta. But perhaps best of all, use it for crumbed squid rings. A side of chips, a fistful of salad, and a dollop of tartare, and you're off! Even better, grab one of Kyeema's Crumbing Mixes, Parmesan, Chilli and Lime, Moroccan, Cornflake and Sesame, for a simple and yummy squid ring!
