Calamari filled with shrimps and mustard sauce

I love calamari, and it is not easy to find them fresh...Yes....I know they are sold frozen, but I prefer fresh ones....luckily, I found a person who brings them fresh (once in a while....) to the place I live.....

Calamari filled with shrimps with mustard sauce

There is no exact amount for this recipe since it varies depending on the size of the calamaries

3 garlic cloves chopped
fresh oregano, or parsley, or cilantro, or chives....any green herb will work
olive oil

Chop the shrimps in pieces that can be used for the filling. Sautee them in olive oil and garlic. Set aside, and add the herbs, salt and pepper. When they are cool, fill the calamaries and use a toothpick to close them. Sautee them in olive oil 3-4 minutes per side or until they are well cooked. Serve them with white rice, and mustard sauce......and with a glass of white wine!!....ENJOY!

My mustard sauce is very simple. I make a bechamel sauce, and I add dijon mustard until I found is spicy enough for my taste.



  1. I too adore calamari! A great idea of using shrimp as the filling.

  2. It's Judee from Gluten Free A-Z blog . I am very intrigued by your mustard sauce which could be used for so many recipes. What a great seafood recipe!
