Squids are among the tastiest cephalopods, the best in winter. The most tender and prized are the Patagonian squids, and we rank high the Adriatic squids, which are generally a bit larger and thicker meat and therefore the most suitable for grilling. Squids are best grilled or breaded, they are also very popular in risottos, pastas, stuffed dishes and salads. Squid only takes a short time to prepare, so don’t overcook it.
