Trying to match the squids eyes with yours. LOL.

Good size, and I dont find them tougher. Just have to cut the rings smaller, or cut into pieces and criss/cross cut the flesh to stop them curling. Dont cut right through, just the outer layer. Yum.

For some real test on toughness, cut the rings very thin, chill briefly. Some good quality Soy, Wasabe to taste. Mix this well. Dip and wait for the melt in your mouth. Hardly have to chew. Pristine taste of the sea. Same for prawn and scallops. But they have to be fresh as, ie it only happens to the ones I caught.

Just have to try this with scallops again. Probably Sashimi style the best taste I have ever tasted.

Neels, I need to get this right, you score them on the outer layer to stop them curling or the inner?

The way I was trained to do it is to clean inside and out for rings, or outside, then cut a long slit to lay the tube flat.  Clean, then score lightly on the inside diamond pattern with the intention of getting the pieces to curl? Then cut into strips/cubes whatever before marinate, crumbed, grilled or wok.

I thought that was the go?

I do understand that you score on the softer inner side to get them to curl, but I score both sides to stop them curling (as much). That way they stay flatter, keep the flavour, take shorter to cook and IMO taste better than a curled up piece of squid.
