It took me years to eat a lot of shellfish. I was probably 20 years old before I had even seen a shrimp cocktail. I like oysters, but fried.
I like poached eggs, but I'll make scrambled or fried or whatever anybody wants.
Often we eat squid fried, so it's fun to grill it for a change. To grill squid, slice the cleaned bodies open into two flat pieces and thread them, along with the tentacles, onto skewers, then grill quickly over a direct fire with the coals as close as possible to the grate, turning the squid several times.
The key to great fried squid is 'flash-frying' in hot oil for only a few minutes, which keeps it tender.
