David Rocco's Dolce Vita Dinner Eggs

Stuffed Calamari

Adventurous Canadian celebrity chef and TV host with Italian roots David Rocco provides a recipe for Stuffed Calamari!

Ingredients (Serves 6)

  • 6 medium squid, cleaned

For the stuffing:

  • 2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup spicy salami, cubed
  • 1 cup provola cheese, freshly grated
  • 1 cup fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup parmigiano cheese, freshly grated
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup white wine

Instructions for Stuffed Calamari

  • Clean the squid. Cut the tentacles off and make sure the opening is large enough to stuff.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the stuffing.
  • Stuff each squid with the mixture, leaving about an inch at the top. Seal the opening by threading a toothpick a few times.
  • In a large frying pan, heat up olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for a minute until the garlic begins to turn slightly brown. Then add calamari and cook on both sides, until the meat becomes opaque. Add in wine and a bit more parsley. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover the pan with a lid, and cook for about ten minutes, letting the wine reduce and the squid finish cooking.
