Tomato Sauce for Braised Calamari
The squid for this braised stuffed calamari is stuffed and then added to a tomato sauce on the stove where it can braise until tender. Oh yes, this is usually the way I made my calamari although I have also baked it. But braising it makes it so succulent. You will love the results, I promise you.
Turn the squid over every now and then to ensure even cooking, or at least give the mixture in the pan a good stir. The filling should not fall out but be gentle when you stir anyway. This can be served with a mixed leaf salad on the side and you will find the dish so flavorful. This is one of the best recipes if you are in the mood for a squid dinner.
