How to Clean a Squid Guide
Follow the step-by-step instructions below, you'll get the hang of squid cleaning in no time!
SquidEzy tools come in three sizes - large, medium and small.
Select the squid cleaning tool which best suits your catch. Slightly longer than the tube is desirable.
Insert the SquidEzy behind the head and along the back of the squid tube. This will sever the membrane and avoid the risk of rupturing the ink sac.
Remove the squid's head and internal organs with a firm tug.
The pen is now exposed and can easily be removed.
Stand up the SquidEzy and use the slot from one of the other tools to release the tip of the membrane.
Peel away the fins and membrane.
Put the tip of the SquidEzy into the end of the tube. Hold the tube firmly with your fingers to prevent slipping.
Push the tool along the tube to invert it.
Scrape away the remaining internal membrane and any residual matter.
The tube is now clean and ready for the kitchen or freezer bag.
