Squid Ink Linguine with Melted Leek Cream Sauce, and Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes
This is one of those dishes that is hard to stop eating! The pasta, with its dramatic color and mild flavor reminiscent of the sea, when combined with the lush cream sauce, roasted tomatoes, and fresh basil, makes a mouthwatering and memorably satisfying meal on its own. But it's very seafood friendly too. Add calamari to it for the perfect symphony of flavors - or maybe you prefer shrimp, or flaked halibut fillet pieces, or...you get the idea!
Stir-Fried Calamari with Thai Basil, Lime and Chilies
This is a wonderfully flavorful way to enjoy fresh squid. The lime and basil are bright and fresh, the chilis add heat, and the fish sauce depth. With some jasmine or sticky rice and a cooling vegetable alongside, it makes a memorable meal. Try it with ridgeback or spot prawns too!
This is an easy and flavorful way to serve calamari – and it's a meal in itself! Redolent with rosemary, garlic and red pepper flakes accenting the sweetness of calamari and pine nuts, and all of it highlighted by the tomatoes and capers.
