While living in California, our family discovered squid and the many ways it can be prepared. This easy, delicious recipe can be served as a first course or as a main course dish. - cltnancy —cltnancy
Test Kitchen Notes
This recipe is beyond easy. Laying the squid out flat means they cook very quickly and throwing the sauce together takes only a minute. The lemon, butter, and herb combo is hard to argue with. You may want to add the lemon to taste to find the best combo for you. Other then the squid, you probably already have all these ingredients. Try it tonight! - biffbourgeois —Stephanie Bourgeois
