Greek Cuttlefish in Red Wine Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds cuttlefish, cleaned
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 3 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
How to cook Greek Cuttlefish in Red Wine:
  • Cut the cuttlefish bodies into thick strips and leave the tentacles intact.
  • Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the onion and cook gently for about 10 minutes, until transparent.
  • Stir in the garlic and cuttlefish, and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes.
  • Add the wine, cuttlefish ink if available, tomatoes, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and simmer gently for about 1-1/2 hours over a low heat until the cuttlefish is tender. (Cuttlefish will create its own liquid during cooking, but add a little water during the last stages if the sauce begins to catch on the base of the pan.)
  • Add most of the parsley and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a warm serving bowl, sprinkle with the remaining parsley and serve hot.
