Calamari Tacos


1 lb calamari steak
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp Italian parsley
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp shallots
1 inch minced ginger
1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)


Wash calamari steaks.  Score them slightly in one direction and then slice them thin (1/4″ to 1/2″)

In a bowl, combine all ingredients and let the calamari marinate at least 6 hours

In a searing hot pan toss in a handful of calamari strips.  Let it sear and cook for 3-4 minutes, mixing every minute or so.
