Marinated Squid

2 lb. cleaned squid, fresh or frozen
1 1/2 qt. boiling water
2 tbsp. salt
1 c. vinegar
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tbsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Thaw frozen squid. To clean, first grasp the head and mantle (body) firmly in your hands and pull off the head, tentacles (arms) and ink sac. Pull the transparent backbone or quill from the mantle. Squeeze any remaining entrails from inside the mantle. Under cold, running water, peel off the speckled membrane that covers the mantle. Wash the mantle thoroughly, inside and out; drain. Cut mantle into 1/2 inch pieces. Place squid in boiling, salted water. Cover and return to the boiling point. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until squid is tender. Drain and rinse thoroughly in cold water. Drain. Combine vinegar, water, oil, garlic and seasonings. Add squid. Place in a sealed container and marinate in refrigerator. Serve with toothpicks.
