Squid is eaten in many cuisines; in English, the culinary name calamari is often used for squid dishes from the Mediterranean, notably fried squid (fried calamari). There are many ways to prepare and cook squid, with every country and region having its own recipes. Fried squid appears in Mediterranean cuisine. In Lebanon, Syria and Armenia, it is served with a tarator sauce. In New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, it is sold in fish and chip shops. In North America, it is a staple in seafood restaurants. In Britain it can be found in Mediterranean ‘calamari’ or Asian ‘salt and pepper fried squid’ forms in all kinds of establishments, often served as a bar snack, street food or starter.
