Calamari or squid can come in many different shapes, and the interesting thing about cooking calamari is you either cook them for a very short time in high heat (3 minutes top) or cook them at  medium-low heat for over 30 minutes Any time in between will end up with rubbery squid. Good thing to keep in mind

Since my squid is fresh I chose to use a small squid and it cook it slowly in medium low heat for about 40 minute total cooking time. Ending with soft, tender calamaris, full of flavor. 

This recipe uses Veggie broth, but this can easily be replaced by ½ veggie broth ½ white wine. If going for a much aromatic type of flavor by adding the wine you can also add parsley is you wish to bring some french notes into the recipe. Both ways are delicious. 

Make sure the squid is fresh and clean before using. If you have never cleaned and cut squid make sure to check our video on how to clean squid step by step
