Catalan Saute of Calamari in Onion Marinade
1 1/4 lb Calamari And Tenacles; Clean
3 tb Olive Oil; Virgin
1 Dry Red Chile Pepper; Broken
3 lg Onions
Salt & Pepper To Taste
Clean calamari and cut tubes
crosswise into 1/2" rings. Dry calamari on paper towels and reserve. In a
medium frying pan, heat 1 Tbs. oil over medium-high heat. Add the calamari
and saute until the rings turn opaque white, about 30 seconds to one
minute. Transfer calamari to a bowl and set aside. Wipe pan dry, add
remaining oil and heat. Add chile pepper and heat until it turns dark.
Remove chile with a slotted spoon and discard. Add the onions to the hot
chile oil and cook, stirring, until onions are wilted, about 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium, partially cover pan and cook, stirring occasionally,
until onions are caramelized (golden brown), 30-40 minutes. (Add more oil
if onions are dry or stick to the pan). Season with salt/pepper. Add
calamari and stir until heated throughout. Serve with slices of hot or
toasted French bread.
