chorizo and goat's cheese-stuffed squid
having slagged off the 'more is more' principle in the last post of 2010, i confess this recipe is not miles away from doing the same thing. not so much in terms of quantity of ingredients - there are only three of them, effectively - but in failing to stop at one good thing. why have only goat's cheese when you can have chorizo as well??? why have just chorizo and cheese when you can mix them up and put them inside a squid???
but you can't go wrong with these ingredients, can you?
CHORIZO AND GOAT'S CHEESE STUFFED SQUID
8 baby squid, cleaned
150g goat's cheese
350ml white wine (or just use water)
a small knob of butter
some chopped parsley
put the chorizo in a small pan with the wine and bring to the boil. simmer for about ten minutes. drain and put in a food processor with the cheese, and blend.
use a small spoon or a piping bag if you have one to stuff the mixture inside baby squid. close the top with some toothpicks - i used wooden skewers because i couldn't find anything else.
heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the squid over medium heat until cooked and nicely browned. when almost done, put in the knob of butter and parsley to finish off the cooking. that's it.
nice eaten with some salad. possibly tomato salad in the summer.
