Stuffed squids

Method A

Ingredients

  • Fresh, medium sized squids (cleaned, not cut)
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped parsley
  • Rice
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Toothpicks to seal the squids
  • Parchment paper (optional)

Method A

Take the cleaned squids and chop the heads and the whiskers. Put them aside for a while and prepare the filling. In a large bowl add all the chopped vegetables (tomatoes, onions, parsley), rice and the chopped heads and mustaches. Season with salt and mix well the stuffing, adding olive oil as much as it takes. Fill then the squids and seal the top side with one or two toothpicks (depending on size). Place the squids in a roasting pot or inside a large piece of parchment paper that is brushed with olive oil. Add some extra olive oil and cover the roasting pot or wrap the squids into the parchment paper by twisting the edges like a candy, in order to prevent the air from getting inside (make sure the squids are not the one over the other and give them enough space to “lie” in the roasting pan). Place in preheated oven and cook for 40-45 ‘at 200⁰C.

Roasted squids

Ingredients

  • Fresh, medium sized squids (cleaned, not cut)
  • Salt, pepper, oregano
  • Olive oil
  • Parchment paper
  • Lemon juice

Method

Take a piece of parchment paper, twice the size of the roasting pan you are going to use, brush it with olive oil and place the squids inside. Add enough salt, pepper and oregano and wrap by twisting the edges like a candy, in order to prevent the air from getting inside (make sure the squids are not the one over the other and give them enough space to “lie” in the roasting pan). Place the pan in preheated oven and cook at 200⁰C for about 40 ‘. Once the squids are cooked, place them in a deep platter, pour inside all the fluids from the roasting pan, and finely chop them. Add lemon juice and if you prefer some extra olive oil.

Fried squids

Ingredients

  • Fresh squids (cleaned)
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • Olive oil

Method

Rinse thoroughly the squids. Cut them into rings if they are large or in small bites. Let them dry out on some pieces of kitchen paper to get rid of the moisture, which would cause the unwanted splashing of the oil during the frying process. Season with salt and cover the squids well with flour inside a colander, to avoid any unnecessary amount. Fry in a deep frying pan or in a wide saucepan with a lot of olive oil. When the oil is very hot, drop the squids inside and fry for 1.5 – 2′. Make sure that the flour forms a crust on the squids and remove them directly from the heat. Place them on a platter, covered with kitchen paper on the surface, to absorb any redundant oil quantity.
