marm, just yesterday I had some kind of cucumber-y sauce with calamari at Macaroni Grill (a place I hadn't been to before) that was quite good. Got any cukes?

I saw this recipe on a local food tv show (Bay Cafe on KRON 4). It looked really good...

Orange Cilantro Dipping Sauce
1 bunch cilantro, fresh
1 tablespoon garlic, fresh minced
1 tablespoon ginger, fresh minced
1 tablespoon habanero chile sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cup wine vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed

1.Place all ingredients in a blender and puree. Pour into dipping bowls.
2.Serve with fried squid.



Just curious.. how do you make the roasted tomato tapanade and the jalepeno tartar sauce?

Too late for this but for next time or for anyone else, try these two sauces:

Maxim Sauce (for Chilled Seafood)

Ponzu-Shiso Remoulade

Tx anyway!

Mish - come on over, I'm sure he'll share! But I might put you to work in the garden!
Marm, my DH is a mayo tartare sauce guy too..But he is not fond of it being sweet..So I put together this for him and even my kids like it..It's simply mayo, finely chopped dill pickle, garlic, a drop or so of whochestershire, 2-3 dashes of Tabasco, make ahead and let come together in refridgerator til serving time..Dh refuses to even look at calamari, but I love it and this little fish place we go to, makes the best..It can be had 3 ways, plain floured and fried, cajun and fried or lemon flour then fried..I get the lemon and just give it a squirt of some lemon juice..The tartare sauce they serve is red and red HOT and not for me Glad you asked, there are some great ideas for me to try...

Tx to all - we actually ended up having the calamari today, after we put together the garden beds! So the sauces were simple - a southestern tartar sauce, made with Penzey's southwestern seasoning, and a marmalade dip made from Stonewall Kitchen's apricot/ginger jam and horseradish.

But I am DEFINITELY copying some of these for later! Tx all!

We don't have calamari here except the frozen, pre-coated stuff.
But I love it, and have had it a number of times in Florida.

The best I've had was at Jimmy Buffet's in New Orleans. They served it sauteed (no breading), in a sweet & hot pepper sauce that was amazing. Both julienned sweet and hot peppers had been sweated together, and the binding liquid was clear, probably thickened with corn starch. It was a little late in the day for me to determine all the ingredients, but it was garlicy and spicey.
We also had his perfect Margaritas, though I gave mine to the others after a few sips and ordered an iced tea (which was also good). We had been partyin' all day, and someone had to lead us back to the Bourbon Orleans.

That night, it had to be me! I didn't care...I got to have Breakfast at Brennan's the next morning. What a kick, to walk in there at 9:30 AM, and see all the waiters line up in their tuxedos (tails).

Sorry to go on...fond memories of New Orleans.
