How to make it

  • Prepare Calamari if you have bought it whole, it is more fun to buy it whole and do this, it makes you appreciate the meal more.
  • Heat oven to 180 celsius
  • Slice calamari body into 1/4 inch wide tubes
  • Slice tentacles into 1 1/2 inch long lengths, marinate tentacles in bowl of lemon juice, pepper and salt for at least 1hr.
  • In a dutch oven on stove:
  • Fry onions till soft
  • Add garlic and capsicum
  • Add spices, and stir through, season to taste
  • Add tomatoes and refill can with water and add this too.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon and a generous dose of pepper.
  • Place calamari rings into the dutch oven stir through to make sure they are covered in enough liquid, place on lid and put in oven for 45 minutes
  • Once the 45 minutes is up, mix spring onions and chilli with the tentacles, fry for 3-4 minutes adding the marinade as you fry them.
  • Serve with steamed rice and tentacles on the side
