Baked Cuttlefish With Potatoes...

Baby cuttlefish are easy to find and quite tasty.  Today I put everything together in one pot and 1hour and 20 minutes later it was ready to eat.

You need:
Serves 4
-  1 kg baby cuttlefish washed.
-  4 medium potatoes, washed, pealed and cut and parboiled 3 minutes.

-  1 big onion very thinly sliced
-  2 heads garlic where individual cloves were added whole not peeled.
-  ½ cup white wine.
-  3 pinches from the spice mix used to freshen up your living room.
-  Salt and pepper.
-  Preheat oven to max.
-  Combine all the above except the wine in the earth wear pot.

 -  At half time remove all liquids, add wine.
-  When time is up, remove rest of liquids and boil in a saucepan to reduce sauce.
-  Continue baking for another 20 minutes.
-  Add reduced sauce on plates if desired.

  1. Good evening:-) It looks very interesting dish but I think I will replace cuttlefish with squids...

  2. Why thank you Anna for commenting and giving me your opinion. Can you imagine I have so many friends internationally who are basically on Facebook, who were reading my posts on Facebook never bothered to comment like you do or Eri on the blog comment and I very much appreciate that. Thanks. Have a good evening.

  3. My Babsie told me that you sent me a message? Comment? I can't find...regarding the Xmas Pudding. Cheers

  4. About the Xmas pudding this is what I replied to you (in one of my "life long" answers:-))

    " .... As for the Christmas pudding, I am planning to upload one recipe in the next few days. It is not the exact traditional one from the point of view that it is less complicated and less time consuming to prepare. It is a simpler version but still very tasty and good looking! I prefer this one so to make things easier for the Greek readers who are not so familiar with this type of things. The traditional English pudding needs plenty of time in advance to be prepared so to mature properly and with plenty of different stages of preparation. If you are after the classic recipe I can find one for you. I'm sure my sisters in law have kept the recipe of their mother because I know she used to do all these traditional staff at home even when most people started getting their Christmas "things" from the Super Markets... I don't know, I might decide next year (being all well) to upload the 100% traditional Christmas pudding just for the sake of it. So, please, don't hesitate to tell me if you want the classic version, I can mail it to you in a few days:-)) ok?"

  5. Thank you very much Anna. I do not want to put you into any trouble. I will read whenever you post. Cheers and have a good night.
