squid ink pasta
“The squid ink pasta at Upholstery Store is a seafood dish that is inspired by the beauty in juxtaposition and the balance of opposite flavors. In this dish, the black pasta and dark caviar contrast perfectly with the sashimi style scallops and the coconut cream white sauce at first glance, but the flavor is why this is a house specialty. The briny and salty elements of the ink and scallops appease seafood lovers, but the sweet finish of the coconut and smooth texture of the pasta provide a roller coaster of flavors throughout each bite. It's totally unique, and one of our many high seas inspired dishes here at 713 Washington Street.” -Leo Schneemann, partner of Upholstery Store

Marinated Grilled Squid
Florian from Begur made me this dish with his catch of the day. He put the calamari on the plancha, and I remember we just sat in his garden on that glorious spring day and ate the lot! Such wonderful hospitality. The picture opposite is of Florian’s recipe – it tasted as incredible as it looks!I’ve added a few more ingredients here and I think they’re a match made in heaven.— José Pizarro, author of Catalonia

Squid Ink Bucatini
Celebrate the sea with this tasty squid ink bucatini — full of cockles, nori, and, of course, homemade squid ink pasta! It is really worth making your own fish fumet (it’s actually even easier than making chicken stock), but if you don’t have enough time, feel free to use your favorite fish stock instead.This recipe is courtesy of chef Travis Swikard of Boulud Sud and Daniel Boulud

Popular in the coastal regions of Greece, Turkey and Lebanon, these tender baby squid, stuffed with fine-grained bulgur and flavoured with saffron and zahtar, are a delightful addition to any mezze table. Other versions include stuffing the squid with cheese and herbs and chargrilling them. To prepare the squid, hold the body sac in one hand and pull the head off with the other. Most of innards should come out with the head, but reach inside the sac with your fingers to remove any that remain in there. Whip out the transparent backbone, rinse the body sac inside and out, and pat it dry. Cut the tentacles just above the eyes, so that you have the top of the head and the tentacle joined together. Discard everything else.Mezze by Ghillie Basan, photography by Jan Baldwin, is published by Ryland Peters & Small.

I was inspired to make this grilled calamari with anchovy and capers after my recent trip to Rome.  My husband and I enjoyed anchovy and capers from Tuscany to Rome and since we love fish I decided to create this perfect dish.  We enjoyed with company as a primi and all shared from the plate.  Of course, you can dip fresh bread in the sauce. I used San Marzano tomatoes from my favorite Italian store Ingredients in Hartford, CT at D&D Market and the calamari came from my favorite fish market in Wethersfield, CT at City Fish, Wethersfield, CT.

Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Squid
This squid dish is one of the most popular spicy dishes in Korean cuisine. The squid is cut into bite-sized pieces and stir-fried in a slightly sweet red chile sauce along with some vegetables. The sauce's main ingredients are gochujang (fermented chile pepper paste) and gochugaru (chile pepper flakes). For an authentic dish, there simply is no substitute for them. This recipe is certainly hot, but not fiery hot. Adjust the heat level to your taste. One way to reduce the spiciness is to use fewer fresh chile peppers (or none at all). Fresh chile peppers are called for in the classic versions of the dish, but the heat can be quite intense with certain varieties. This dish is perfect for those craving a tasty and spicy meal. The red chile sauce adds a burst of spicy flavor to the crisp vegetables and tender squid!

We’d be hard-pressed to argue that burrata is not one of the most heavenly cheeses imaginable — and we’d say the same about this ravioli from New York City's Asellina with oven-dried tomatoes, oregano, and aged balsamic.

This is an extremely satisfying dish, with richly flavored rice and browned calamari that will surprise even those who think they don't like squid. The same recipe can also be made with peeled shrimp instead of calamari.

salad
This salad is bright and refreshing, with lots of textures from all the citrus and the squid, and pops of flavor from all the fresh herbs. If you can’t get the citrus listed below, try any low-acid citrus fruit.
