I bought some more frozen squid this week and had two dishes in mind to make with it. The first one is a recipe taken from one of Rick Stein's book. I can't remember which one it is as it has been a few years since I made it, but I imagine it was one of his early ones. I first saw it when he came to a book signing in the BBC shop in Belfast about ten years ago and cooked it for us. That was the first time I had tried squid and have really enjoyed it ever since.
I found the recipe on line, so here it is. It really is a beautiful and simple dish. I served it with a couple of slices of sourdough bread but a glass of chilled white wine wouldn't go amiss either.
I cooked a little squid for Poppy but she sniffed it, poked at it and then walked off. Obviously nothing but prime tuna can satisfy her.
