Local diver takes the plunge with dangerous squid

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A local photographer risks his life once again for the sake of capturing amazing images of ocean creatures.

Jon Schwartz shot pictures of Humboldt squid off of Newport Beach. These squid have been known to attack and kill large predators, including sharks.

In this News 8 video story, Meteorologist Shawn Styles reports from Point Loma with a closer look.

Pt. Loma Seafoods Fried Humboldt Squid


2 or 3 squid steaks, tenderized
2 cups Mrs. Kelly's seasoned bread crumbs, or store bought
2 cups canola oil
Cocktail and tatar sauce


Cut Squid into strips, 1" by 2" to 3'. Toss in bread crumbs. Tim says they don't use an egg wash but you can if you want. Preheat the oil to a medium-high heat, add in the breaded strips, be sure not to overcrowd the oil. Remove when golden brown; remember don't over cook. Serve immediately with cocktail sauce or use tartar sauce and make a sandwich.
