Here in Puerto Angel, southern Mexico, the baby squid are making a showing with the local fishermen. Daniel my husband came home yesterday with about 1 kilo of these divine sea creatures. I marinated them with limejuice, red onion & fresh chili pods. Last night sitting in the hammock, cold Bohemia in hand we enjoyed these first of the season delicacies. Melt in your mouth goodness. Have any of you enjoyed baby squid when it is this fresh, and if so how do you prepare it? Herbs De Provence & good olive oil perhaps. Oh, and sourdough from San Francisco. How I miss the bay area.

I can still taste the baby squid I ate at Cibo Restaurant in Adelaide 4 or 5 years ago. I took my mum there for a lunch organised by Delicious magazine, as her Mother's Day present. We both agreed that it was the best Mother's Day present ever! And we both got to enjoy it.

And the squid! Unforgettable. Marinated in lemon juice and char-grilled. Simple, but simply perfect.

I went back to eat at the restaurant a couple of times, but they never had baby squid on the menu again.

Rainey...I thought that you would of contributed to this post by now, being the prolific writer that you are. Have you no baby squid to report on?

I've had baby calamari for breakfast at the Seafood Market in Sydney. Sauteed and served with a squeeze of lemon.

Just cleaned. Not cooked, just cleaned - with a little wassabi and some pickled ginger perhaps? Wink

Queekie, I'm on my way to your house!

Closest we get to squid, 'round heah, is in the frozen foods locker. They're ok. But nothing compares to fresh.

Alas. Crying or Very sad

When I could get the baby squid, I liked them stuffed and quickly grilled.
