Makes 4 serves
1 squid about 700-800 grms
100 grms yellow easy melted cheese or another cheese of your choice
1 onion peeled and chopped
a handful of thyme and parsley
50 grms pine seeds
4 tiny shrimps peeled and chopped
2 pieces of dry tomatoes chopped
1 small size tomato chopped
1 tea sp salt
¼ tea sp pepper
1 tea sp soy sauce
2 table sp olive oil
a glass of semi sweet pink wine
Wash and clean carefully the squid. Throw away the offal and the ink sack. Cut its head and chopped it in small pieces. Sauté the pieces(in a pan) with a table of sp olive oil for 10 minutes in very slow fire. At the end, add a small portion of wine ,to give its fragrance to the calamari pieces. Set the squid pieces aside, ….and after 10 minutes, add them in the bowl.
Now, cut the cheese in small cubes and place them in the bowl.
Sauté the chopped onion with a table sp of olive oil, for 5-7 minutes and add it to the bowl.
Sauté the pine seeds without olive oil, till they turn brownish. Then add them to the bowl …
Chop the dry and fresh tomato in tiny pieces.
Once you have place all the ingredients in the bowl, add 2 table sps of olive oil, and mix well with a spoon.
Once you have clean and wash well the inner of the squid , let it dry, and add with your hands a small portion of salt and pepper, inside its sack, and a tea sp of olive oil.
Now start to stuff it with the mixture. Don’t over stuff it.
When you finish stuffing it, close the squid upper side, with a toothpick. .
Place the squid in a baking pan (I prefer a Pyrex, but if you don’t have, its ok) and brush it with olive oil and salt form both sides. Add a glass of semi sweet pink wine and a half of glass of water.
Cook it in the oven with hot air (200 c) for 20 minutes, not more ……don’t overcook it…it will taste and feel like rubber if overcooked.
