I'm looking into sous vide squid. My ultimate goal for the pick-up is to have it stuffed with crab and chorizo. But I'm not sure as to whether it would be better to cook the hoods and then stuff them or vice versa. Any advice or experience with this technique?
Stuffed Squid Sous vide
How long of a pick up time are you looking for? I'd precook the stuffing, and warm it to order. Then stuff it in the squid the grill them for a few seconds. Eric Ripert has a similar dish in which he does the same thing but one person makes this dish and only this dish because its so time consuming. Now that I think about it sous-vide is a great idea for this technique, not too tight a vacuum, then just toss the stuffed squids on the grill or saute pan for color. Try both ways!
