How to Clean Squid?

Grasp the head gently, but firmly away from the body and begin twisting so that the head and tentacles will detach. Just below the eyes of the head, cut straight down to remove the tentacles. Squeeze the connective tissues on the tentacles to remove the beak. This is necessary if you are going to eat the tentacles. For the tail part of the squid, you must remove the cartilage by pulling it with your fingers an then discard. You can either keep the skin on or remove. It is easy to remove by just pulling it away from the flesh. Thoroughly wash the inside of the tail and using your fingers to remove any other innards. Pat dry and then continue with your recipe.
