Seafood Dishes

(serves 4)

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
1 kilo medium-sized squid
1 large onion
2 spring onions
2 tablespoons dill, finely chopped
2 cups rice
2 tablespoons plums, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Wash and clean the squid. Empty them by removing the central membrane. Remove the tentacles and finely chop them in a separate bowl. Add the onions, dill, rice, plums, 1/2 cup olive oil, nutmeg, a little salt and pepper. Stuff the squid with this mixture. Secure the end of each squid with a hard toothpick, so that the stuffing will not come out. Place in a wide pot, add 1 1/2 cups water, cover them and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Carefully take them out with a fork and place them in a Pyrex dish. Sprinkle them with the remainder of the olive oil and lemon. Place the squids in the oven for 20-30 minutes at moderate temperature until brown. Let them cool and serve.
