Frozen Torbay Squid

One of the things we look forward to is Squid season. One minute there are no Squid to be seen and then suddenly there are plenty. At the beginning of the season they are small, but very quickly grow. 

The flavour of Torbay Squid is sweet and the texture is very tender. It is a versatile fish and can be cooked in a number of ways including frying, roasting, braising and chargrilling.

Whole Squid are fully cleaned and prepared at the quayside for you, ensuring you get to enjoy all the benefits of this delicious fish with none of the hassle. 

Depending on the size of the Squid that are landed, you may receive one medium Squid or two smaller ones in your order. 

All the fish in our frozen section was caught at its best and flash frozen at the quayside. It will gently defrost as it’s on its way to you, so it will arrive as fresh as the day it was landed. It shouldn’t be refrozen when it arrives at your home. Put it in the fridge and enjoy it within the next 2-3 days as you would with our fresh fish .

Cooking techniques

Take one of our cleaned Torbay squid and cut it into pieces. The head section can be cut into rings and the tentacles cut into 4 equal sized pieces.

Add some olive oil to a frying pan and get it nice and hot. Add lots of sliced garlic to the pan and when it just starts to colour add the squid. Toss the squid around in the hot pan for a minute or two which is all it will need to cook. Season it with salt and then add the juice of half a lemon and a handful of finely chopped parsley. If you like spice you can also add in some dried chilli at this point.

Toss the ingredients around in the pan again just to mix it all through, take off the heat and serve with crusty bread and a salad.

Seasonal chart

Seafood has times when it’s at its best and most abundant. This can be down to when they spawn, when they swim into the South West waters, or when the tides and the weather are in our favour.
