Slow-cooked squid and chorizo stew

Slow-cooked squid and chorizo stew

Slow-cooking softens the texture of the squid and brings out its flavours to mingle with the tomato, chorizo and smoked paprika.


To finish the dish and serve
  • 100g/3½oz squid, cleaned, cut into rings

  • chopped flatleaf parsley

  • micro leaves

Preparation method

  1. For the paste, in a medium frying pan over a medium heat, heat the olive oil and fry the onions, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and smoked paprika for about seven minutes, or until lightly golden-brown.

  2. Add the tomato purée and cook for three minutes, stirring frequently. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for five minutes, or until they have broken down.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover with a lid, but leaving a small gap for steam to escape and reduce the heat to minimum – just a few bubbles. Cook for one hour.

  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper if necessary.

  5. To finish the dish and serve, flash fry the squid rings for one minute in a hot frying pan until golden-brown and just cooked through.

  6. Arrange the stew on a large dish or four large plates. Sprinkle with parsley and spoon over the sauce. Top with flash-fried squid pieces and micro leaves.
