Squid, fresh from the Indian Ocean, belong to the species of cephalopods and are found in both coastal and oceanic waters. Squid are famous for their soft meat and can be cut and cooked in various shapes including tubes, rings or whole. Rings can be battered and fried; mantles can be stuffed and baked in a sauce.
Squids contain large amounts of phosphorus, similar to fish and shrimps which helps in stimulating calcium and building the bones and teeth. They also contain important vitamins, proteins and strengthen the immune system.
