Light and full of flavor, ceviche is a great use for calamari and couldn’t be simpler to toss together. Grapefruit and lime juice work here as the citrusy base, and mango adds a tropical twist. Since the calamari is poached first, this nontraditional ceviche is ideal for those who shy away from raw seafood.
What to buy: If you purchase whole, uncleaned calamari, 1 1/2 pounds yields about 12 ounces of cleaned squid. Check out this CHOW video on how to clean squid for tips.
