Calamari Steak


Was roaming around Whole Foods the other night looking for something to make for dinner and came across something I hadn’t seen before — Calamari Steak.  I’ve had rings and thin calamari tubes, but this stuff was amazing. About 1/2″ thick and 1/2lb per steak. Had to give it a try.

Unfortunately neither of the guys at the seafood counter had any idea how to cook it so did a little research while waiting in line to check out.  I found info that said season and pan sear for about 1 minute per side.  That sounds easy enough.  I just used for garlic salt and Florida Seasoning from Penzey’s for seasoning.

To pair with this, I also sauteed some kale and mushrooms in sesame oil.

When I was at Whole Foods I also came across some Manchego that was on sale.  Love Manchego because I can actually eat it because it’s made with sheep’s milk vs. cow’s milk.  Lactose intolerant folks can bear it!

So, with all said and done, enjoyed a great meal of calamari steak — which was a bit chewy, in a cool way, kale & mushrooms, manchego and olives.  Not too shabby, at all.
