The Town Dock cleans all squid by hand. As a best-in-class calamari supplier, we feel it is essential to clean by hand to provide our customers with the high-quality end product they’ve come to expect from the Town Dock.
Calamari rings are created from the tube of the squid. Simply lay the tube flat, horizontally, and make vertical slices along the tube at your choice of thickness.
Squid are a very abundant fishery, with most species actively managed on a quota system. This system is in place to ensure the health of fish stocks and maintain strong biomass, keeping them from being over-harvested. Most squid live about one year and one female squid can lay up to 180,000 eggs.
Calamari is an extremely versatile protein that can be prepared in almost anyway. While the most traditional preparation method for calamari is frying, many restaurants and home chefs love to sauté, broil, stuff, or bake their calamari. Popular seasoning choices include: tartar sauce, marinara sauce, hot pepper rings, a lemon wedge, parmesan cheese, salt & pepper, and a garlic aioli.
Calamari is a really great protein option that can be added to salads, pasta and other grains, or seasoned and eaten on its own.
We offer 4 main calamari product lines (each with different variety options of Tubes & Tentacles, Tubes Only, Rings & Tentacles, and Rings Only) – our Black, Classic, Green, and RI USA. We also offer calamari steaks and calamari strips.
Our cases come packed as 4×2.5lb, 10×2.5lb, and 20×2.5lb trays. Our steaks and strips come 6x5lb packages.
We offer a large selection of fresh fish products that are caught by our own fleet and then carefully unloaded, sorted, cut, and packed at our waterfront location in Point Judith, Rhode Island.
