Yeah, now that you mention it, I am surprised I've never thought to make it. I'm obsessed with calamari. I guess it always seemed easier to order it.

Best place to find it? asian markets in the frozen food section! I buy it and its already cleaned, and i just have to thaw it and fry it up!

"Many groceries carry frozen, pre-cleaned squid in their seafood section." Not true. I've tried 5 stores.

I don't make the deep fried stuff at home (lack of a deep fryer and ventilation system), but I do make squid stir fries.

I thought about it for a sec and I don't want to turn you first-timers off from trying to cook it at home. I made pepper-salted squid which required me to deep fry and quickly pan fry it. I think the deep frying was what made my house so smelly. That and all of the garlic. :)

Yes, I've made it before and it came out great EXCEPT for the smell! You need to have an industrial fan or good ventilation otherwise your house will reek of it! Now I prefer to go out for squid.

I couldn't make it if I wanted to...I can't find it in any grocery store near me. I'm not a huge fan of it, so I don't really mind that I can't make it at home.

Hmmm. Now that I think about it, I can't remember ever making it at home. You know what that means: time to give it a try!
