Calimar with Fennel and Onion
Ingredients: 2 squid steaks, about 6 oz. each
2 lemons, juiced
1/4 cup olive oil
herbs, salt, and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp butter or olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fennel
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup dry white wine
1. Prepare a marinade from lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Italian dressing may be substituted as a marinade.
2. Place squid steaks in a non-metallic pan, and pour marinade over. Cover and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
3. Remove squid steaks and wrap in plastic. Pound with a mallet or bottle to tenderize.
4. Heat olive oil or butter in a pan over medium heat. Saute onions and fennel until they begin to just soften.
5. Add white wine and squid steaks. Simmer until done, about 10 minutes per side (steak should lose translucent appearance throughout). Add white wine as needed to maintain liquid. Do not overcook!
6. If desired, reduce the white wine mixture and use as a sauce.
