Rice with squid is a very simple dish that does not need much presentation. The ingredients themselves make this meal look elegant and attractive. During my childhood, this was one of my favorite meals; I would always ask my mother to make it several times each month. I also remember how she would prepare it with a side of habichuelas guisadas or stewed red beans, but I always preferred it alone or with a few tostones. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    In a pot, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion, garlic and parsley for two to three minutes.
  • 2
    Next, add the fresh squid and the canned squid with ink. Let cook for a few more minutes and add-in the fish broth.
  • 3
    When the mixture begins to boil, stir in the rice and cook on medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Serve with tostones or if you prefer with stewed red beans.
  • Don’t add too much broth or water because the squid itself releases a lot of water while cooking.

Expert Tips

  • You can skip the canned squid if the fresh calamari comes with ink or if you just prefer the dish to have a lighter color.
