I would assume it would be served raw. But no, it's dead. She had just gotten back from the store and knows I hate raw squid. She did give me Y1000 worth of fatty tuna though, for free. That's two tiny pieces. It was good.
Call me names, go ahead, but I think a squid has a lovely shape. Remember: if you grill them: throw them on the grill, slam down a foil-wrapped brick on top of them, and take them off 60 seconds later, that's it. Little lemon and salt, yum.
Smokety, are you the one who posted once that you also get creeped out if you look too long at natural things like the insides of pomegranates (sp?) or the flesh cell of green peppers or seed pods etc?
So right, Steven. Remember how quickly I leapt out of my chair when you pointed out that bug behind me? If I was on the beach and saw a squid in the water I'd be up in the lifeguard's chair in a millisecond.
