How do you thaw squid?
It's frozen solid. Do I put in the frig overnight? If it's not thawed, can I put it in water tomorrow morning to thaw it completely? Do I fry the tubes AND tentacles?

I just put it in a colander in the sink...

Yep fry the tubes and the tentacles.

Have fun!!

Without water?

pdswife 01-21-2006 12:40 PM

I know.. it doesn't sound healthy.. but thats how I do it.. and I'm still alive and kicking.

You could do it in water though.

If you thaw it under running water it will defrost a lot faster.

You're right, ironchef, but I hafta say I just hate letting the water run like that.

texasgirl 01-21-2006 02:58 PM

Me too, but, I will if it's not thawed by the time I need it.

It doesn't need to be running water. Just put it in a big bowl of cold (yes cold) water. Change the water every half hour, but for squid it should not take more than one water change I would guess.
