Think Beyond The Ring! 

What's a calamari steak? They are made from the same seafood meat as a calamari ring or tube, but from a much larger squid. In our case, they are cut or stamped from Jumbo Squid (Dosidicus gigas, also called Humboldt Squid). This unique cut is an excellent substitution for boring whitefish or chicken. Professional kitchens serve them grilled or fried, stuffed in wraps, sandwiches, and even made into calamari croutons for a delicious salad. Many foodservice professionals offer calamari strips (which are like fries) as an appetizer with a sauce flight, too. 

Calamari Steaks or Strips are way to incorporate heart-healthy, omega-3 rich seafood into the diets of picky kids (or adults!) as they don't have a fishy taste and can easily be cut into smaller pieces and readily accept the flavors of however you choose to prepare it.
