Jump to Recipe

Stuffed Squid with lemon butter sauce is one of the easiest and popular dishes of Greek cuisine. Let’s make stuffed squid, a delicious and easy recipe that takes us on a trip to the fascinating seafood islands. Before go to stuffed squids recipe, you have to wash and skin the squid, separating the head from the body. Greeks adore this dish because the squids of the Mediterranean sea are small-sized and very tasty. We’ll begin by preparing the stuffing.

I most prefered baby mince chicken and olives stuffed used for this recipe, by which it enhances the smoothness and sourness. Once you know this recipe, after this you can make as per your liking vegetable. We know very well some of the people do not like chicken that used for kinds of stuff.

Most of the people are preferred greenish vegetable with a lot of garlic and olives, that depends upon their mood and their cuisine. Even mostly liked cooked squids in a different way, that may be Grilled squid, batter-fried squid, lemon butter squids and a salad of squids.

Suitable accompaniment with stuffed squids with lemon butter

As a food lover, mashy peas is one of the most beautiful accompaniments with this stuffed squid with lemon butter sauce recipe. If you do not like the mushy peas, you can try with some starchy side dishes like herbs rice, mash potatoes. Except for this, we have uncountable side dishes, that can be served. But I always prefer mushy peas accompaniment with this recipe. For this, you need only crushed the green peas and saute with garlic and olive oil. Seasoning with salt and crushed pepper.
