Squid, a favourite on Croatian menus, can be prepared in a number of different ways. The most popular are usually fried, on the gill or stuffed.

Check out this squid stuffed with vegetables and pancetta recipe from Cro Chef, Almo Čatlak.  

Ingredients:

• Squid – 8

• Fennel – 100 g

• Carrots – 80 g

• Onion – 1/2

• Garlic – 3 cloves

• Toast Bread – 2

• Pancetta – 50 g

• Corn (optional) – 80g

• Thyme – 1/2 spoon (dried)

• Rosemary – 1 sprig (fresh)

• Extra virgin olive oil

• Salt

• Pepper

Instructions:

• Grate the carrot, remove the crust from the bread and chop the soft, white part into cubes. Next finely chop the onion, pancetta, fennel and squid arms.

• Heat up 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil in a pan and add the chopped onion, pancetta, fennel, carrot, crushed garlic, thyme and squid arms. Add salt and stir. Add the rosemary and fry on a low heat.

• After 4-5 minutes take out the rosemary branch and put the rest into a separate bowl.

• Add the canned corn and chopped bread and a bit of olive oil, pepper and mix well.

• Using this mixture, stuff the squids, but not completely as the squids will shrink during the cooking process. Close with toothpicks.

• Place the stuffed squids in a slightly greased pan and fry for 5-6 minutes, turn the squids and cook for the same time on the other side.

• The stuffed squids are now ready. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.
