Market squid is a treat for us living near Monterey Bay. Usually pre-frozen, squid is delicious fried up as calamari, thrown on the grill, or tossed into a pasta. Believe it or not, squid can also be eaten raw and is delicious! Fun fact: squid are harvested at night using bright lights that attract the squid to the ocean surface. If you spot boats lighting up Monterey Bay in the evenings, you’re likely witnessing squid vessels at work!
