Calamari season

It looks like calamari season is in full swing. You didn't know there was a season for calamari? Neither did I. But it is here, and runs from now until about January. I don't have a picture of how they look raw (mostly because I didn't think to take out my camera). But I have a picture of them cooked.

What I did was slice up some fresh white potatoes, and wash the calamari. Then I layered potatoes, calamari, chopped parsley, chopped garlic, olive oil and a bit of water. I layered until I ran out of ingredients. Sprinkled it all with salt, and popped it into a hot oven for 30 minutes.

It came out so nice. And tasty. We ate the WHOLE thing in one sitting.

No wonder, the photos alone are bound to cause excessive salivation ;-)

I love calamari! Used to buy them from a Greek restaurant in Vancouver. Love having them fried and just squeezing lots of lemon juice over it and dipping it in their tsatziki sauce. Mmmmmm
