I was at Sprouts the other day and in an effort to always buy wild caught fish I picked up a calamari steak. There was nothing else! I’ve never cooked calamari steaks before and had no idea what I’d do with the thing. I searched online and all the recipes I found were breaded. Then the stars aligned and I found this recipe on pracitcallyprimal.com. I had to tweak it a bit to make it Paleo but it was fate that I had all the ingredients and I had even already put broccoli on to steam when I noticed it suggested serving it with steamed broccoli!
1 squid steak
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper
Pat the steak dry and coat both sides with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a saute pan. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Don’t let it turn brown. Add the juice of the lemon. Add the squid steak. Cook for 90 seconds per side. Serve with steamed broccoli and pour the lemon sauce over everything.
This turned out really good! I will probably add calamari steaks to my regular rotation. Happy cooking!
