Recipe from Portugal - Lulas Recheadas

Stuffed Squid
Ingredients: (4 servings)

1 Kg of squid (medium sized pieces)
100g smoked ham
2 medium onions
2 cloves garlic
5 medium tomatoes, quartered and de-seeded
1 egg
Bay leaf , Parsley, Olive Oil, Salt and pepper

How to cook:

Clean the squid

For the stuffing, chop one onion, one garlic cloves, the ham and the tentacles from the squids and mix them together. Crack the egg into this mixture and blend thoroughly. Then stuff the squid sacs with the mixture and close them with bits of a toothpick.

Fry the other chopped onion and garlic in a casserole dish for a couple of minutes, add the tomatoes, the bay leaf, some parsley, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the squids and a little water to cover if necessary, put the casserole lid on and simmer for half an hour. Water may be added if you think the mixture is starting to dry during cooking.
