If you haven't tried squid, try it. It is different, but tasty and lends itself to many great recipes.

This is very tasty -- my squid lover gave it an enthusiastic "you can make this again, please!" Because of changes in schedules, the squid marinated for longer than suggested--it didn't seem to hurt it all. Good recipe--thanks, Ev!
