How to keep the squid tender
- Marinate the squid with vinegar to tenderize the meat and reduce any chewiness, let it sit for 30 minutes to one hour before you start to cook. The vinegar’s acids help to break down the protein fibers in the calamari.
- Alternatively, you can soak the cleaned shrimp in milk. The milk’s lactic acid helps to break down the protein fibers in the calamari.
- Drain well, and dry thoroughly remove any moisture from the surface of the steamer to ensure that it sears quickly and does not overcook in a steamer.
- Griddle at VERY HIGH HEAT The faster the grill heats, the quicker the squid will brown.
