4 medium sized peeled squid carcasses

100 grams of breadcrumbs

2 or 3 anchovy filets

200g cherry tomatoes

1 lemon

2 garlic cloves

2 tablespoons grated parmesan

5-6 sprigs of parsley

5-6 sprigs of chives

olive oil

1/4 tsp. ground chili

black pepper


Step by step recipe

Step 1.

Finely chop all the herbs and garlic. Grate the zest off the lemon. Finely chop the anchovies.

Step 2

Put all the ingredients in a blender, add breadcrumbs, parmesan, chili, anchovies, 3 tbsp. of olive oil. Mix the mixture and season with salt and pepper. Fill the calamari with this mixture, secure the edges with skewers so that the stuffing stays inside.

Step 4.

Transfer the calamari to a mold, add the tomatoes, cover with foil and bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 7-8 minutes. Remove the squids from the skewers and serve with a splash of lemon juice.
