6 Minute Meal & Deal: Oloroso's Grilled Calamari Salad. Alicia Vitarelli reports during Action News Mornings on September 5, 2018.

The Meal:

Oloroso Chef/Owner Townsend Wentz' Grilled Calamari Salad with lemon ancho chile vinaigrette

Calamari, cleaned and scored

Chef Tip: Buy the Calamari in tubes at your seafood counter or local fishmonger then slice open, flatten and run a sharp knife lightly in diagonally and vertically. This enables you to cook the calamari on the grill without the tubes slipping down into the coals

Drizzle a little oil on the Calamari, season with a little salt and put on the grill

Chef Tip: You can also saute the calamari in a pan stovetop

You will cook it on one side only. It will take only about 1 minute

While the calamari is grilling, prepare your vinaigrette

Whisk together:

cup honey

Fresh lemon juice from 4 lemons

6 chopped dried ancho chile

Chef Tip: You can also add red onion

Pinch of salt

Pinch of Piment d'espelette

Chef Tip: You can find this at specialty grocers. The Chef uses it on everything

1 TSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Take Calamari off grill, cut it into bite-sized pieces and add to your dressing.

Mix together

Add cup roasted peppers

Chef Tip: You can put these on the grill before the calamari or buy in a jar to save time

Add 1 cups Arugula, cleaned

Toss and plate

Top with another pinch of piment d'espelette


The Deal:

Dine at Oloroso Wednesday, September 5th-Wednesday, September 12th and you can get a free draft sherry with an entree purchase. Just tell them you saw this feature on 6abc.
