Calamari + Spinach Risotto w/Gremolata

October 26, 2010 by Joan Nova in Quick Peeks, Rice/Risotto, Seafood | 11 Comments

With this post, I’m initiating a new series called “quick peeks”. It’s sort of the Cliff Notes of food blogging…a photo or two, abbreviated dialogue, and keywords to pique interest and perhaps inspire.Risotto, baby calamari and spinach cooked in an absolutely delicious broth made from mirepoix, white wine, lemon, red chili flakes, garlic, capers, green olives, evoo.
Topped with gremolata of fresh parsley, lemon rind, minced garlic.

I bought this pretty spoon in the airport in Brazil. As soon as I saw it, the food blogger in me kicked in and I said to myself...the perfect bite. You’ll probably see it again as I seek out the perfect bite.

NOTE: Some recipes found on FOODalogue are offered without ingredient quantities. They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for. A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!
