Squids and Peas

One of the best recipes from my mom’s kitchen. Healthy, tasty and simple!

Squids with Peas

Ingredients for 2:
6 large squids (more exactly I used sepia/cuttlefish)
300 gr of peas (fresh or frozen)
200 ml of dry white wine
3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
a spring of parsley, chopped
salt and pepper

How to prepare:
Clean the squids, dry them and cut them in pieces (around 3 cm). Use both body and tentacles.

In a large pan put the extra virgin olive oil and the garlic cloves. Fry the garlic at low heat for a couple of minutes.

Add the squids into the pan, rise the heat to medium/high and cook for two minutes. Then add the white wine and cook for two more minutes. Now cover with a lid, low the heat and cook for 15 minutes stirring from time to time.

If you use frozen peas, defrost them.

After the 15 minutes are over, add the peas to the squids. Season with salt and pepper, add 100 ml of water and cook covered for 30 minutes more. Stir from time to time and add more water if necessary.
Finally, add the parsley, check the salt and pepper and serve. Suggestion: perfect with warm croutons.
