Calamari Ripieni


3 Pounds Calamari cleaned
1 Pound Shrimp
2 Eggs
¼ Cup Chopped Parsley
½ Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
16 Ounces Marinara
Pinch of nutmeg
Tooth Picks


In a pan add olive oil, minced garlic sauté lightly until garlic turns translucent. At this point add 1 pound of sliced calamari and 1 pound of shrimp sauté for 5 minutes add parsley, season and set aside to cool.

When cooled completely chop all ingredients and place in a bowl. Add bread crumbs, eggs, nutmeg and mix completely. Place filling in the cavity of the calamari but not over stuffing because calamari will shrink during cooking process. Place a toothpick through the top of the calamari to help prevent the filling from escaping during the cooking process.

Sauté the stuffed calamari on low heat add the marinara and continue to cook for 20 minutes. Place in a plate and serve.
