Put a Ring on It
By any name – calamari, calamaretti, totani, seppie - when battered and fried, these small squids are the appetizers everyone at the table agrees on. Crisply golden outside, tender yet chewy inside, and made for dipping, it’s not surprising that calamari is one of the most frequently ordered ethnic appetizers. All the more reason to make room on the menu for this high margin, perennially profitable item.
Add crushed red pepper flakes or chopped chili peppers to marinara to make a quick and spicy Arrabbiata sauce.
Apps with Staying Power
Since 1996, calamari has trended to the top, bringing to the table an instantly appealing plate presentation. Its perfectly seasoned, unique coating is an ever-ready dipping companion, ideal with marinara sauce, flavored mayonnaise, vinaigrette, tartar sauce or yogurt. Prepare as you prefer: in addition to frying, calamari can also be sautéed, grilled, boiled or braised.
