Went to my fav squid haunt today with a mate and caught a dozen in varying sizes, mostly a bit small but one horse which was very nice tonight 'salt & pepper' style with some chips.

Normally I launch my dinghy in the marina at Busselton and clean my catch when I get home. Today I put launched on the beach a couple K's north of the ramp and when we got back we cleaned the squid on the beach.

What a revalation.

With a handful of sand those slippery little suckers are not so slippery any more. The skin just falls off without them jumping out of your hands. Turning them inside out is a snap. I only had to give them a final rinse under the tap when I got home to get the last of the sand off.

Never again will i clean squid without having some sand nearby.

Regards

Neil.

Cool, I never thought about that! I suppose the sand doesn't get rubbed in its skin?

Not at all, the skin comes off easily and the sand washes right off.

I thought I had discovered this method myself but since I posted I have seen the same suggestion elsewhere on this great site.

A pinch of cooking salt between the fingers peeling the skin helps at home in the kitchen.

Never happier than on a quiet pier, on a cold, dark, wet night, with a bucket to sit on, pole in hand and a fully charged iPod.
