Because we are busy people, I'm going to show a recipe that you can leave ready from the night before, ready to warm it up and eat it. It is easy peasy, you only need few ingredients, and only take few minutes to prepare it.
I would reccommend that we use fresh calamari for better taste, but I have to confess (mom, please, cover your ears) that I use the frozen ones. Just make sure to defrost them before cooking. Usually the night before I take them out of the freezer and put them on the fridge.
We actually use in Spain another type of calamari, that we call "choco" and that it would look slightly different from the squid. But in Canada i have only found the second one.
|Choco o sepia|
Patatas con Calamares (Potatoes with squid)
2 squids (if fresh) or 450 grams if frozen
1/2 Green pepper
3 or 4 medium potatoes
300 grams greenpeas
1/2 cup cooking wine (sherry wine)
How to prepare it:
2º Now peel the potatoes, and cut them in cubes. Add the potatoes, the squid rings, the green peas and the parsley in the pot with the resto of the igredients.
3º Add salt, ground black pepper and the cooking wine and pour water until you cover all the ingredients.
4º Leave it boiling for about 20 minutes. After that it will be ready to serve. Otherwise, you could consume it later, it only needs to be warmed up.
Adjust salt, and serve it. Enjoy!
