This is a wonderful recipe for calamari lovers! Not chewy and great alternative to the deep fried calamari rings…Pretty easy to make! Buon Appetito! 

  • Clean the calamari, gently twist the head out as you want to pull out the intestine (they don’t taste very good)
  • Keep the heads but cut away the part of the mouth & eyes
  • Chop tomatoes, onions, parsley, garlic & mix with salt & pepper
  • Transfer half into separate bowl & add the egg, breadcrumbs and the chopped calamari heads – mix thoroughly
  • Fill calamari with the mix, don’t put too much otherwise you’d not be able to close them
  • Close with a toothpick
  • Heat up pan with some olive olive oil and let the second part of the chopped ingredients simmer a bit
  • Place calamari in & cover with lid
  • Let simmer on stove for 15-20 minutes
