Paella is one of my favorite dishes to make and nothing beats a good tasty squid paella. The recipe that I am going to feature here today may take approximately 1 hour to make and has some degree of difficulty to do. But the cool thing about Paella is that you can always experiment with its ingredients and make something amazing still in the end :)
Here is the recipe:
* 24 oz cleaned squid
* Salt and pepper to taste
* 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz) of olive oil
* 3 cloves minced garlic
* 1 large yellow onion, chopped
* 3 1/4 cups (26 fl. oz) fish broth
* 1 green bell pepper, chopped
* 1 1/4 cups (10 oz) rice
* 1 medium tomato, chopped
* 1/4 cup (2 fl. oz) dry sherry
* 1/4 teaspoon saffron
* 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/8 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
* Lemon wedges, to garnish
Cut the bodies of the squid into rings, quarter the tentacles, season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a paella pan over medium heat and sautÃ© the onion and garlic and green bell pepper for about 3 minutes. Add the tomato and sautÃ© for a further 3 minutes.
Pour the rice into the paella pan and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the sherry and continue to stirr until the sherry evaporates.
Add the squid, broth, and the rest of the seasonings and cook for 25 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the broth has been absorbed. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.
