Buying Squid (Calamari) online: Know What to Look for
The squid is hand-cleaned and packed to the highest standards in the industry. It is a sustainable fishery actively-managed on a quota system.
The East Coast Loligo Pealei is the only squid listed as “Green - Best Choice” on the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Seafood Watch” list. This is the best eating, highest quality calamari on the market. Squid tubes and tentacles are available year-round, and are caught fresh from America’s North Atlantic waters, thoroughly cleaned and frozen in Rhode Island.

Commonly fried as calamari, there is much more to squid than the breading. Their subtle taste and meaty texture make squid adaptable for most recipes. Infuse a smoky flavor on the grill, marinate it in a ceviche, or add to your favorite stew.
Squid contain significant levels of protein, as well as essential minerals and vitamins including zinc, copper, niacin and vitamin B-12.
Buying Fresh Seafood Online from Anderson Seafoods has never been so easy, or tasted so good!
How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
