How to make it

  • Lay the squid tubes flat on your chopping board and place a long knife inside the tube.
  • Pull the knife either to the right or left and cut the tube open on one side.
  • Unfold the tube flat, leaving what was the inside pointing up.
  • Remove any excess membrane left inside with a sharp knife.
  • Rinse it under cold water and pat dry with some paper towel.
  • Again lay the squid inside up on your board.
  • With a very sharp knife cut the squid in half along what was the opposite edge.
  • Now we’ll do the criss cross cutting.
  • On each of these 2 halves make an incision across the centre from corner to corner, (cut as deep as you can without cutting right through).
  • Now make incisions parallel to that incision about 1/2 cm (1/4 inch) apart.
  • Then repeat this procedure along the other angle from the other corner to corner.
