Calamari Season

Out at sea you can now see lots of little boats bobbing around, many staying overnight and shining strong lights into the water. This indicates it is calamari season. Brits don't tend to eat "squid" but I love it. Edin has been asked by his friends to go out overnight, but he can think of nothing more boring than staying out in the cold night air, with a rod, waiting in silence (even though there are a few cases of beers onboard). Our friend today gave us half a kilo of his last night's catch. Edin spent 50 minutes gutting the calamari ... great, there was black ink all over the kitchen! After the preparation, dipped in a little flour and fried ... delicious!

  1. Yum! Never liked calimari myself, until I ate it in Greece. Something about eating it next to the ocean from whence it came.....delicious!
