Chipirones a la Andaluza (squid).


Today, I am cooking a squid dish perfect for a tapa. I love this recipe. Besides bravas, this is what I always order, and usually I order both.

It is light enough that you don’t feel full after eating it. Squid is commonly eaten in Spain. It is grilled, stuffed, served in paella and other dishes. You can easily find it  in any seafood market. Here, it is not so common. You can find it at your better supermarket or seafood market. My local market here in Maryland has it once in a while.


– Squid tentacles (the end parts)

– 1/2 cup flour (you might need more)

– 1 tablespoon cornstarch

– fresh lemon juice

– 2 cups vegetable or canola oil –


Mix the tentacles with the flour and cornstarch until the flour is fully incorporated. Preheat the vegetable oil or canola oil in a large pan on high heat. 

Cook the squid until a nice golden brown (Be careful, as the squid has a tendency to “pop” when cooking.) Remove from the oil and place  on a plate with paper towels to drain excess oil. 
Squeeze some lemon juice on top and season with salt. 
Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Bon profit!
