That looks so disgusting! Please refrain from putting such disgusting photos on your site. The cooked dish is ok, but the uncooked pic is pathetic!!

I adore squid, but do not cook it often, as my family are not as fond of it as I am.

My favorite way to have it is Thai--with chilies, shallots and garlic, stir fried. Then, at the end, some lime juice and Thai basil is added--it is an amazing dish.

I think that your recipe would taste similar, yet would be unique. I may have to give it a go for myself for lunch some day.
