    mmm, went shopping today, icon_smile.gif
    I ended up buy some frozen squid and baby Octopus,
    I dont really know why I bought them, just seemed a good idea at the time, but now what am I going to do with them ?

    (also got a bag of whitebait, bout half a kilo, I reckon, also got a bag of crab claws, I was going to make a crab starter, bit like a prawn cocktail, but open to any suggestions for them)

    (I was looking for a receipe of a dish I had in Thailand, Squid with curry powder, but I cant find it in here) icon_cry.gif

    (You haven't really posted in the right place, what the heck! icon_wink.gif )

    Your squid: has it been cleaned? What does it consist of: whole squid, not skinned, or ... well, what does your squid/calamari look like?

    Octopus: now that is a bit of a worry. You might do better if you posted in the Greek forum, where a lady called Evelyn is the host, and she is VERY informed and will know all about octopus. No, I don't have the link. Try putting this into the address line, and you'll get ALL the Zaar forums:

    http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/

    (Oops, I hope that works).

    Squid: I cannot give you a lesson in cleaning whole squid. It's fairly easy, if slippery ... the pinkish skin have got to be peeled off ...

    Then: (and this is as far as I will go without more information) calamari/squid can be done in ONE of TWO ways. Either you fry small tubes or large tubes cut into rings VERY fast in VERY hot oil, OR you use a slow, stewing recipe. Nothing in-between will work well.

    Over-fried squid is tough.

    I'm skipping octopus, because I think I've had a try at it once when I was very newly married and very kitchen stupid.

    Whitebait!! Now there is a little fish food I haven't seen in a long while, where I am (southeastern coast of South Africa). When we lived and worked in Johannesburg I would buy boxes of whitebait and fry it ... I adored it, my DH did not much.

    Roll the whitebait in white flour. Fry them quickly in a pan of shallow oil. Drain on kitchen paper. Lightly season with sea salt flakes. Serve with chilled white wine or whatever. Remember a few wedges of lemon or lime!! icon_biggrin.gif

    The crab I can't help with. I always seem to battle with crab. I now see to it that when a certain brother-in-law comes to visit, that he has a cooked crab to slowly pick to pieces and cut open ... He loves it. wave.gif

    thanks for that, I dunno what squid is supposed to look like, but they still have all the bits attached,(looks like they were just put in the box and frozen)

    I was just going to give them a quick fry, then make a curry sauce and put them in that

    I tried that with the white bait, a bit of reallyt crusty bread, they were really good, I made the crab claws into a crab cocktail, (bit of lettuce, mayo, paprika, salt, pepper, slice of lemon) they werent bad, wll the dish was licked clean, so I guess they were fine

    I'll be checking out about the octopus in a few days (still a bit dubious about these things icon_redface.gif )

    Thanks again, much appreciated

    Years ago my cousin made a haddock, potato & Sour cream casserole that was to die for. I have been hunting for this recipe for years and have not found it Online. I tried asking her daughter, but she didn't remember and my cousin is now in a home with alzhiemers.

    I remember that she made a roue and i think it had milk. I don't remember if she put anything on top, like bread crumbs. It had onions too I think.

    It's sort of like scalloped potatoes and fish layered in a casserole dish and baked. There were two layers of each, but I'm not sure on the quantities and baking time.

    Is anyone familiar with this recipe and could I get some help? This would be a great fish recipe to add or demonstrate.

    Thank you,
