  1. This was very good, Although there was a lot of vinaigrette left over. I didn't pour the vinaigrette over the calamari, i instead put it in a bowl as a dipping sauce and that worked out fine. I also topped the calamari with some cracked black pepper and some salt. This was definitly good and will probably make this again, as long as I have a stronger cajun seasoning (mine was a bit weak)
  2. I love Calamari! This was delicious, it was full of flavour and so easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly as written, didn't change a thing. It was such a big hit the serving plate was empty, I served it with Recipe #249539 & Recipe #269463. Thank you darang61


I'm a busy mum to 5 plus a precious grandson. I've always had a passion of serving healthy nutritious and most importantly tasty food to my family and friends. Being an Aussie I have a insatiable appetite for bbq'ing . My cookery books fill three shelves of a large bookcase and I use the internet constantly looking for new recipes and ideas. My passion for food and cooking has been passed down to my children with 2 now being qualified chefs and another 2 working part time in the food industry whilst studying. My grandson has enjoyed the benefits of a 'foodie family' and has only ever eaten food freshly prepared by us and usually grown by a member of the family as well. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG" width=100%> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view&current=crazykeas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/crazykeas.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
