Calamari and chorizo sausage toss

Serves 8


  • 3/4 lb cleaned Calamari, cut into ½” wide slices in including tendrils
  • 1 ½ lb. imported Spanish dry medium spicy Chorizo Sausage cut into ½” cubes
  • 1 ½ cups diced ¼- ½” yellow onion
  • 2 cups diced ½” Yukon gold potatoes
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • GC Wild Fennel Finishing Sea Salt, to taste
  • 1 lemon


  1. Rinse & dry Calamari. Slice into ½” wide slices & put into a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Remove any skin from Chorizo Sausage and slice into ½” wide cubes & put into a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In fry pan, sauté using low heat 1 ½ cups diced yellow onion in ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive oil until soft & golden. Remove & set aside.
  4. In separate fry pan, sauté using medium low heat 2 cups diced Yukon Gold potatoes in ½ cup olive oil until they get a lightly brown skin & soft in the middle, but not mushy. Add to sautéed Onions.
  5. Add calamari & Chorizo to the onion & Potato mixture & heat through until calamari is slightly cooked. This takes about 2 minutes. Do not overcook the calamari or it will become rubbery.
