'Calamari' is the fancy name for...squid!
|Well, maybe it's not as big as this giant specimen from the Melbourne museum. (Thanks, Wikipedia.)|
|Fishermen will catch these - and bite them on the head to subdue them. Weird.|
frozen calamari - 1-2 pounds - thawed and sliced
(remember: we're serving 8 people, but this is just one of several courses)
2 green onions, sliced
1 green or red pepper, chopped
1 tomato, chopped (optional)
1 teaspoon garlic
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Got everything ready? This won't take long. Coat your pan to sizzling with olive oil, then toss everything but the cilantro in. Stir-fry approx. 3 minutes, until the calamari is tender to the bite, and the vegetables are still bright and somewhat crisp. Sprinkle cilantro on top, spritz on the lemon juice, and serve with rice. Yum.
