Calamari Mediterranean

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ChefDebs

This is a really nice way to prepare calamari as opposed to frying it. Make sure you have plenty of french bread to mop up the juices.

Spectacular! And I didn't have the parsely, ancho chili or white wine! Used a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar instead. Used about half the pepper flakes and 2/3 of the cumin. <br/><br/>I didn't squeeze the raw calamari completely dry and think that made for an even more flavorful sauce. Wonderful to sop with the baguette!
