We love squid...but can only buy it in area oriental markets in 3 pound boxes, frozen. If I thaw the entire box, we end up with too much squid. Years ago, I used to ask store meat cutters to buzz saw the boxes in half, length wise, following the "lay" of the squid in the box. Not much loss, and this worked well, keeping all frozen. No one wants to do that anymore, sigh. Can I thaw, prepare & cook ALL of the box,..then freeze? Any ideas for dealing with smaller portions of squid from the frozen boxes?
