1 1/2 pounds squid, cleaned

15 garlic cloves, peeled

1/2 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced

1 bunch cilantro, chopped


  1. Cut the squid into 1/4-inch rings. Wash, dry and place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Puree the garlic with 1/4 cup of the olive oil in a blender until smooth. Pour over the squid. Add the salt and pepper, tossing to combine.
  3. Heat a dry medium skillet over high heat. Then add a generous tablespoon of the remaining olive oil and heat until almost smoking. Pour in one-third of the marinated squid and saute about 30 seconds. Stir in one-third each of the tomatoes and cilantro and cook about 2 minutes longer, just until the tomatoes dissolve and the garlic colors slightly. Transfer to a platter, wipe out the skillet and repeat two times. Serve hot over rice or Spinach Pilaf.
