Tell Me About Calamari.

As I was surfing the interwebz this afternoon, calamari came to my mind... on two separate occasions. 
First when I was on Tumblr and saw a picture of fried calamari with marinara,
and second when I saw something on my blog roll that looked a lot like calamari steak but wasn't.
I got squid on the mind!

So my question is, how difficult would it be for me to attain some good quality calamari
and to cook it in a delicious way? I live in Midwestern College Town, USA so there aren't
any local fish markets that I can swing by... so I am limited to the super market.
My personal preference is Kroger, but Jewel might be the better contender.
I would definitely have a better chance of finding some when I go home for Christmas Break.

I would like to use calamari steaks like this:

The best tasting squid steak I have ever had was at Kiku Japanese Steakhouse, just plain hibachi style.
I can only tell that they pre flour the steaks, and then cook them in oil and butter with salt and pepper.
So I'm assuming the amazing flavor comes from the type of oil they use.

I can't find any pictures of what it actually looks like after it is cooked, so I'll have to go sometime soon to take some photos :)

Do you guys know of any good recipes or other ways to cook calamari?
