Hi everyone,

I have been asked whether or not you can smoke squid.
If so, how is it done.
And a follow up question is "does it taste any good?"

Cheers,

Glen :lol :ink

Hi Glen,

I'm a big fan of smoked squid and most other seafoods:)

The way i do it is simply clean the squid completely and soak them in a mix of brown sugar and cold water (1 part water to 2 parts sugar) for 20 minutes. The squid are best if they are sliced into bite sized squares about 1" square rather than cut into rings as the squid when smoked is a lil chewy.

Generally i also prepare some scallops, small thick pieces of fish and prawn tails or crab meat in the same manner. Just cover the pieces with the brown sugar mix and soak for 20 mins then drain off completely. I use the smoker rack to drain them off so i dont handle them and get sticky fingers again.

The sawdust i prefer is either mangrove or a mix of apple and hickory.

About 10 minutes in the smoker (snowbee stainless steel job with the metho burner underneath) is all it takes to cook this superbly.

Dress the plate with some sliced capsicum, avocado, sliced fresh onion, baby corn and boiled rice. A little bowl of chilli sauce and soy sauce don't go astray either.

Bon apetit :rolleyes:

Tony.
