Saucy Squid

Hola!!

Isn’t this weather crazy? Last week it was 65 degrees and I was BBQing and this weekend it’s in the 20’s. So, I am not outside grilling. Instead, I am cooking some cozy, saucy dishes… The other day I made a simple but delicious saucy squid. This dish is very simple to execute, it literally takes 3o minutes or less,  perfect for a busy weekday dinner.

Let’s get into the recipe!

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth
  • 1 lb squid, include the tentacles! (If its longer than 3 inches slice it- or it will take longer to cook)
  • 1/2 cup peas
  •  olive oil
  • salt and pepper

 

Coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil, then heat the pan on medium heat until the oil is shimmering. Add the chopped onion and garlic and cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. Add the bay leaf and the vermouth and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Add the squid and let it cook on medium-low heat for about 7 minutes. Add the peas and let it cook for another 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

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.
