Sautéed Calamari with Parsley and Garlic

Tender squid shine with just a handful of ingredients and a few minutes on the stove. Serve with lemon wedges for acidity and crusty bread for sopping up any leftover garlic-butter sauce. We recommend also pairing with our easy Dill Pickle recipe.

For a behind-the-scenes look at the Brombergs’ cooking philosophy, check out their Q&A with CHOW.

Instructions

  1. 1Pat squid dry with a paper towel.
  2. 2Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat until smoking. Carefully add squid in a single layer, then add butter, garlic, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until squid is opaque and cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes (do not overcook). Season with additional salt and pepper, and serve with lemon wedges.
