So, what is calmars?

Calmars, also known as squid, are a versatile seafood ingredient that is commonly used in Mediterranean and Asian cuisines. These elongated cephalopods have a soft, delicate texture and a mildly sweet flavor that pairs well with bold spices and sauces. They are a rich source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals. Calmars can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as grilling, frying, or stuffing, and can be used in dishes ranging from simple salads to complex stews. With their unique taste and texture, calmars are a delicious and healthy addition to any meal.
