  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Trim the ends of the squid bodies to make them an even size, and rinse out the tubes. Spoon the cheese mixture into the cavities of the squid until full, and secure the open ends with toothpicks. Place in boiling water, and cook for 6 minutes.

  • Remove the stuffed calamari tubes from the water, and place in a baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sesame seeds. Place the calamari tubes in the skillet, and fry on all sides until golden brown. Remove toothpicks before serving.

The concept is great but the total cooking time is overkill. I skipped the boiling and browning and cooked in the oven only. My squid were small and hard to stuff but turned out really good. Because I skipped the final skillet cook and in doing so spaced out the sesame seeds but still good. Larger squid is the key here if you can find them... Read More
