Squid is a favorite dish in my family. Trouble is we can’t find it often (except frozen prepared brands) where we currently live. But when we do eat it, we savor every bite.
- Squid ink noodles
- Calamari fried or sauteed
- Squid Kebabs
- Stuffed, grilled, in a stew
If you can find some good squid try this recipe:
PARMESAN-CRUSTED CALAMARI KEBABS
Calamari tubes, 1 pound cleaned
30 6-in skewers
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup panko
½ tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Favorite sauce: we like using Ginger People ® Sweet Ginger Chili sauce or garlic-drawn butter
Slice tubes in half, lengthwise. Thread onto skewers. Combine cheese, EVOO, panko, salt and pepper into a shallow dish. Brush the squid lightly with egg white. Dredge squid into panko mixture. Place skewers on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan. Broil calamari 5-6 inches from heat for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown. If using wooden skewers, watch carefully since they may burn.
Serve with your favorite sauce.
