I found some squid tubes frozen at the Int. Market. I hope that little membrane was cleaned out.

Thanks for all the help!

When I grill or stuff the squid, that membrane is not very pleasing.

Half Baked, I hope you're watching Food TV right now, because the Iron Chefs are competing with squid.

Sorry folks, I am confused.

I do what Andy does, and if there is a membrane other than the cartilage plate that I just pull out, I don't know what it is.

Am I missing something?

There is a thin membrane on the inside of the mantle. I've found that it makes the squid curl up more and is odd to chew. I just prefer it removed.
