Absolutely delicious! Tripled the recipe for my son's Christening and they finished the lot! Everyone wanted the recipe afterwards. Thanks for posting this jem!

Yum Yum. I was skeptical because I had never cooked calamari at home but now it will become a favorite.

Great... I used fresh lime juice and fresh clintro along with less oregano. Added a small amout of hot pepper! GREAT! There are many ways to change this up... A great recipe!
