Let me just begin by saying that “Calamares en Su Tinta”, or Squid in its Own Ink, is one of my all-time favorite meals. It is juicy and savory, and has a wonderful, seafood taste. Nevertheless, I realize that if you have not grown up eating squid, especially in its own black ink, it can be a little intimidating.
Trust me when I say, this is a very simple dish to make, with just a few ingredients. But, the way the flavors combine with the squid makes it incredibly delicious, and a real showstopper. Try it at home once, and you’ll love it. Then make it for your best, open minded and foodie friends. You will absolutely amaze them! And if you don’t want to clean the squid yourself, buy the best clean squid you can, and visit your local gourmet store to buy jarred squid ink. Nowadays you can buy it ready to use, and it will save you a lot of time.
