What is Calamari?
Calamari is an Italian word that means “squid.” It usually refers to a battered, deep-fried appetizer served in restaurants and bars in the United States, though some people confuse it with Squid’s primary ingredient. While Squid is prevalent in many Mediterranean nations, it is also widespread throughout Asia.
Squid is used in paella, risotto, soups, and pasta in Spain and Italy, while lulas, grilled entire kebabs of squid rings with bell peppers and onions, are popular in Portugal. Fresh Squid is frequently deep-fried in Korea, then wrapped in lettuce leaves with mustard or chili sauce.
