How to quickly and properly clean the squid from the film? 3 cleaning methods
In order to make any salad with this ingredient, you must first clean and boil them. How to do it correctly and at the same time quickly?
Fans of watching videos and videos, I give this opportunity to see the whole process of cleaning and cooking these "handsome" here in this story:
As you could see from the video, everything is just elementary.
Nowadays, this marine product is being sold in stores more and more often, already frozen and purified. Well, what if you bought fresh head and tentacles.
First you need to remove the tentacles. With one hand, hold the head of the marine animal, and the other pull the tentacles. With this movement you can easily remove the tentacles and entrails.
Frozen carcass must first defrost. It is best to lie in a warm place and defrost on their own. Do not resort to a microwave, it will damage the structure of the meat of the clam.
Methods for cleaning squid from the film. There are several options:
1 option.Gently with a cooking knife, lift the skin and remove. This method is time consuming and time consuming.
Option 2.You can boil the carcass in water for no more than 2-3 minutes so that the meat does not become hard and rubbery. Boil longer is not worth it!
Important! If, however, you have forgotten and have elapsed for 2-3 minutes, then cook the mollusks for 1 hour, you can even 2 hours, after this long time they will again become soft.
3 option.Pour boiling water over fresh clams and gently remove the skin, it should be pulled easily. In boiling water, they should lie down for 2 minutes.
Next, put the carcasses of the “sea beauties” in cold water with ice, and remove from them the rest of the skin, if it has not been removed. You can try scrape them with a knife.
Many hostesses wonder how much time you need to cook squid? The answer is simple: no longer than 2-3 minutes, you can even 1 minute.
All peeled clams, if you notice the appearance of a cream shade, well, or white. On the inner surface there is also a film that needs to be picked up with a knife or with the help of fingernails on it to remove it.
There are cases that this film is also on the outside, even if you have already removed the skin, then under the skin you could simply simply not see and remove this film. Clean the film on the outside.
The secret of delicious squidlies precisely in this, for some reason, not everyone knows about this invisible film. Many do not remove it, and then they say that this dish has no taste. So do not forget to remove the film! And the meat is sure to turn out soft, tender and tasty.
After you see that the carcass of the marine mollusk is peeled from the film, make a vertical transverse incision on the outside (outside) and clean the chitinous chord inside. It is transparent, long and very dense, pulling, it is easy to clean. .
If anything else is left of the viscera, remove it without fail.And after removing all unnecessary "garbage", rinse the carcasses well under running water.
How to cook frozen squids for salad, so that they are soft?
I will tell only the most popular ways of cooking these marine creatures, and in my opinion the lungs, which should be used in everyday life. There are more complex cooking options, but I think that true chefs, who have more than 100 guests in a restaurant, use this method.
Method 1Take a saucepan and pour cold water into it. Place squid in water. Salt and boil for 1-2 minutes. Attention! Do not leave the pan, as soon as the water began to boil, you saw the first bubbles on the surface, immediately note the time, and then prokaraulite and get a rubber taste. Then drain the water, and put the shellfish on a plate to cool.
Method 2 Place the carcasses in boiling salted water and cook them for 1-2 minutes after boiling. Then immediately put them in ice water. In my opinion, this is the easiest way in everyday life, and the meat is very tender and soft.
Important! Cook the product in salted water! Since it is during cooking the meat will take the desired taste of salt, if you forget to salt,it will be impossible to do it later!
Do not think that cleaning and cooking these beauties is very difficult and time consuming. No! Once again, no, just try it and I'm sure you will succeed.
