As S keeps catching squid, we decided now might be right time to try some squid recipes. S found a recipe for Moroccan calamari in tomato sauce

Ingredients all lined up
  • 1 pound of calamari (squid) - cut into rings
  • 2 tomatoes - peeled and pureed
  • 1/2 onion - chopped
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

calamari (squid) that was cut into rings
2 tomatoes we pureed in the blender

  1. Add the olive oil, tomatoes, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, and paprika in your cooking pan. Cover the cooking pan and let all the ingredients cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.

  2. After few minutes, add the calamari to the sauce. Cover your pan and let the calamari cook for 45 minutes - 1 hour. Stir from time to time.

We used Basmati rice which I rinsed around 3 times in cold water then boiled stove top with a little salt and oil
