I have tried it worked ok but there was grains of sand that seemed to stick to the tube.

Aaaah Blue, the penny drops.

I made the same oversight as 85, I hadn't realised it was about the squid tube being split and opened to clean , , , , I went more general in "squid cleaning" as a whole.

"Sanding" the tubes was hard , , , , but I can understand now that with the tube being slit and open it may be better.


Yeah, would be nice to find out if anyone has done it this way with wet sand

Cheers, Bugs

Cheers bug.

Gonna make some parmas tonight I'll give this a go.

On chicken do you go flower > egg > tandaco or just dip the fillets straight in the tandaco?
Cheers

All easy as, easiest way to make Schnitzels , , , , no need for flour or egg (The Tandaco must have a flour content in it already which does it all) , , , , just dip straight into the Tandaco. Helps if whatever you are coating is wet first, but not dripping wet.

Sounds like dinner should be at your place tonight :-D

Hope they come out a treat for you

Cheers, Bug
As someone who has literally made thousands of chicken parma's IMO you cant really go past Japanese panko crumbs. I know its a little more fiddly than a straight up flour & crumb mix but i think the end result speaks for itself.

Anyway, sorry.. back to the topic of squid.....

I always prefer to cut the tubes open, nothing wrong with fried calamari strips instead of rings. But i have never tried the sand method.. always the tumbler bag for me.
The only thing better than serenity is a two stroke at full throttle!
