What, exactly, is a Calamari Steak?

PhillyCook | Mar 3, 2010 06:41 AM

I just ran into this terrific looking recipe for Lemon Pepper Calamari Steaks

I have some whole cleaned calamari from Trader Joe's in the freezer at home. What, exactly, is a calamari steak? Is it just the body of the squid, without the head? Do I leave the body whole, or cut it down the side so that it's in one layer?

Please help -- I'm dying to cook this, but I want to make it right. I have squid fear... anxiety that my squid will not be tender if I don't cook it right.
