Stuffed squid with tomato sauce Sicilian

Stuffed calamari in tomato sauce, Alla siciliana. ' Filling ': Here's, in front of this word I melt. It doesn't matter what it is filling and what made the stuffing. I like it anyway. These are squid stuffed with stewed and their tails a mixture of bread crumbs,  pecorino and parsley and then cooked in a simple tomato sauce. The potatoes are cooked in sauce and so this is already a tasty single dish. But do not forget to buy bread, because in this case the liner’ It is really mandatory. I admit that the recipe is a little’ long, and for this I have made on my You Tube channel the VIDEO RECIPEsquid stuffed with tomato sauce, where I'll also see how you clean the squid (and squid): you have no more excuses!

If you are, like me, fans of squid, also try the SQUIDS STUFFED WITH POTATOES IN WHITE, cooked in white and with the tomato in the stuffing. In Sicily, At home, we often do this dish using squid instead of squid: I really like, They have a more intense flavor and firm and the sauce becomes much good, so as to be perfect for pasta. I totani (which also cost significantly less than the squid) But they need a longer cooking, then you must use a very liquid tomato passata.

If you want, found on my YouTube channel also VIDEO RECIPE step by step of SQUID STEW WITH POTATOES. Obviously, do not forget to have a look at all my RECIPES WITH SQUIDS and all my SICILIAN RECIPES. Have a good day.

PROCEEDINGS

Before starting to prepare the stuffed squid in tomato sauce, look carefully VIDEO RECIPE in which I will explain how to clean perfectly and how to fill and close the squid in the correct manner.

For the sauce: put in a large pan of a wire 5 extra virgin olive oil, chilli and a clove of garlic in shirt (with the peel and lightly crushed) and cook on low heat. When the garlic is lightly browned, to add the tomato puree, a few leaves of basil and season with salt. Cover and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes, then remove the garlic and chilli.

Peel the potatoes and cut into pieces of uniform size. Fry the potatoes in another pan, always in extra virgin olive oil, until evenly browned, then add the tomato sauce and cook for another 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the squid: Chop into small pieces tails and chop the garlic and a little’ parsley. Sauté the tails of squid, with garlic and parsley, in a little extra virgin olive oil. Fry for 5 minutes, then put the tails in a bowl, Add the bread crumbs, parsley or basil, chopped, the garlic and the chopped capers and grated pecorino. Season with salt and pepper and add just enough oil so dough is still grainy but soft.

Fill with this mixture the squid, if necessary using a spoon, as you see inVIDEO RECIPE: be careful not to fill them too much otherwise might crack during cooking, where platters leaving a space of about 1 cm before the edge. Close the ends of squid with a toothpick and put them in the sauce. Add the white wine and allow to evaporate the alcohol.

Cook the squid into the tomato sauce (with the lid) for 15-20 minutes and when they are cooked, fire off, add to the sauce some more basil leaves. Serve the squid along with their sauce and potatoes, accompanying them with slices of toasted homemade. Bon appétit!

THE PAIRING: with this dish rich in fish suggest a sparkling wine, the Rosamaro, a brut sparkling wine produced by the winery Farms Abbasi, located in Puglia. A wine that has as its base to 100% Negroamaro grape, Lightweight, with hints of white fruits and red fruit, very delicate and frizzante.

Ada Bonjour!!
Then…Obviously yesterday I found the squid. Though I had a great desire to try the recipe I got the squid, knowing full well that it would not be the same thing…variety too small and heavy legs…and indeed the heads are broken during cooking…
Anyway, the recipe is very good even with the squid…let alone when going with Squid!!! A warm greeting!!
