As we travelled about a country that has seafood taking a good chunk of its cuisine – well, near the coast, anyway – I feel it’s fitting that I give you a dish that can be tried at many konobas in the stunning country of Montenegro.
It’s a simple preparation of squid stewed with a few vegetables – producing a rich, hearty and flavoursome meal.
Char-grilled squid can be seen on countless menus; often served with fries, some fresh lemon, and maybe a salad garnish. It’s delicious and perfect with a chilled local vino and (preferably) a waterside location in a quaint fishing village.
If only we all had one of those down the road from where we live.
Stewing the squid, however, makes it nice and tender, and those beautiful additions like tomato, wine and herbs soak into its flesh.
Each mouthful fills you with warmth, and if you like the rich taste seafood, then you may want to try this one on for size.
Crusty bread, chilled bottle of vino, what more do you need?
