Calamari

It is my favorite food ever!
I think I saw it in a grocery store once
If I were to get some, does anybody know a recipe for a batter for it?

So you like it battered and fried? Have you ever stuffed it?

No i've never stuffed it
I've only had it at The Keg, Casey's, and Shoeless Joe's
The Keg and Casey's cut theirs into rings (so a normal cut) and put a nice batter on it. And Shoeless Joe's juliennes theirs and uses this batter that has a nice little kick to it.

I've seen calamari stuffed with garlic on this garlic cook off on Food Network Canada
but what else can you stuff it with?

I have a recipe from an old relative that I made for him once that stuffs the squid with breadcrumbs, romano cheese and shrimp. It's served with marinara sauce.

Where in Canada are you?

If you're working at a restaurant, you may be able to get some from a supplier.

I'm from Oshawa Ontario which is about an hour from Toronto (our capital)

The restaurant I work at is called Montanas Cookhouse and we do not serve calamari at all. I wish we did so I could get a 50% discount when I'm working.

Do you serve seafood? A seafood vendor could get calamari for you.

Also, you're not that far from Toronto. There must be good seafood sources there.

calamari fritti (fried) and calamari imbotiti (stuffed) are 2 good ways to prepare squid.

marinara or fra diavolo are also popular. or you can combine a few techniques, and serve breaded fried calamari over sauced pasta. i've seen this called "ny style", but i think that was somewhere on a vacation. ny'ers eat squid lotsa different ways.

my favourite way happens to be thai. flash grilled on skewers, then served on a bed of lettuce, and topped with jullienned carrots and red cabbage, chopped fresh cilantro, and sweet chili sauce.
