PREPARATION
4
Remove the tentacles, sac, beak, eyes and spine and wash any sand off the squid. Fill each tube with the cheese and basil mixture and close the opening with a toothpick. The opening of the squid is be very small and is sometimes a little difficult to fill.
6
Place the filled squid on a hot grill and cook for only few minutes. Any longer and the squid will be very rubbery. Turn the squid a few times to get all the sides grilled.
7
Salt them immediately after taking them off the grill and serve them immediately when they are hot and the mozzarella is still stringy. http://turosdolci.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/little-grilled-things-grilled-stuffed-calamaretti/
