Another Mediterranean inspired dish the braised squid takes its inspiration from rustic Portuguese and Spanish cuisine. The dish itself is a Mediterranean staple with the primary ingredients (squid, red wine and bread) being readily and consistently available in that area of the world.
Rather than serving the squid as rings, the tubes are opened lengthwise and then cut into stew sized pieces. They are then added to a mixture of sautéed chorizo sausage, mirepoix and tomatoes. Red wine is then added and the squid is braised until it is perfectly tender.
The dish is finished with house made croutons and parsley.
