Calamari (squid) Sauce Italian Recipe

Calamari (squid) Sauce or Calamari Stewed with Cherry tomatoes is an exquisite summer dish from Neapolitan cuisine. It could be enjoyed as a main course seafood dish or with pasta for a tasty first course. This dish is easy to prepare with just a few ingredients. You can use giant calamari or calamaretti (small squids). This dish is between a stew and pasta sauce. If you prepared it in advance, it would taste even better We prefer to use fresh calamaretti, but you can also use the frozen.

Here is Giovanna’s recipe for how to prepare the best calamari sauce:

Ingredients:

500gr Calamaretti

300g Cherry tomatoes

1/2 Glass of White Wine

One clove of garlic

Chili pepper q.b.

Evo Oil

Salt q.b.

Treated parsley

A sprig of lemon thyme

Lemon thyme perfect for fish dishes 

 

Directions:

  • First, if you buy fresh calamari, ensure they have washed well. If you get giant calamari, you must cut it into rings.

  • Heat the oil in a large pan, and sauté the garlic, the chilly, and lemon thyme sprig.

  • After that, add the calamaretti, browning them for a couple of minutes.

  • Then add the chopped parsley and cook everything for a while.

  • As soon as calamaretti change their color into red, blend them with the white wine. Let evaporate for a while, and add the cherry tomatoes, cut in half.

  • Add a 50ml of water and cover the pan with a lid, and let it cook over low heat for about 25 minutes.

  • And here it is, your calamari sauce is ready to be enjoyed.

 

  • If you wish to eat it as a pasta dish, the shape that goes perfectly with it is a long and flat pasta such as linguine or spaghetti on guitar or Paccheri and half sleeve without rifling.

Buon Appetito 😊
