Calamari Salad

Another one of the Seven Fishes from our Christmas Eve feast, sis-in-law Chrissy's calamari salad came together quickly and easily. It was the first time I've ever had calamari served this way...and I'm in love with it!
As we all know, any kind of seafood is alway better when it is absolutely dead fresh. It was obvious this calamari was, as the aroma given off while it was draining was just mouth wateringly wonderful! I haven't smelled anything so ~pure/oceany/clean~ since we used to boil conch on Grand Cayman back in the good old days (O how I miss that Caribbean conch...and Cayman, too!). 

As you can see from the (lack of) ingredient amounts, this recipe is most definitely a Throw 'n Go affair!


The T'nG:

white vinegar 
lemon, juiced
Italian parsley, chopped

Cut the calamari tubes into 1/4" ringlets. No need to chop the tentacles. Bring a pot of water to a boil and then add the calamari and boil for 2 minutes or to your preference. Drain, reserving liquid, and let cool. Add vinegar, parsley and lemon juice and mix well. Season with salt to taste. 



'till we feast again!
