    Polenta

    Calamari

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring 5 cups salted water to a boil in a small saucepan; whisk in cornmeal until it thickens, about 2 minutes.
    2. 2
      Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, 40-45 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in butter, if using, and season with a little pepper.
    4. 4
      Serve polenta warm from the saucepan or pour it into a cakepan, allow to cool, cut in wedges, and re-heat in a 400 degree oven.
    5. 5
      Cut squid bodies into 1/2 inch rings and cut the tentacles into pieces.
    6. 6
      Rinse squid and wipe dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      Heat oil, over high heat, in a skillet until shimmering, but not smoking; add squid and stir to coat with the oil (be careful as the squid may spatter).
    8. 8
      Quickly add the garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, marjoram, and mint; stir and cook until the squid rings puff up and become opaque, about a minute.
    9. 9
      Add the wine and cook a minute more.
    10. 10
      Turn heat off and stir in parsley and green onions; serve calamari with polenta, pan juices, and lemon wedges.
