Add the parsley and mix it all through the calamari so that each piece is dressed with flakes of parsley leaves. We used dried parsley here today, and in the past we have had the fresh parsley to add -- both are good, and if you are in a pinch, the dried parsley is an easy solution.
Sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the squid before serving. We also sprinkled some more parsley on top of the calamari for our garnish. Serve this while it is hot -- that is when it tastes the best!
We like to serve a calamari when we need something different in our menu. When having company over, this is a nice dish to serve because it is easy, but looks like a lot of work. We think that the most work comes from having to buy the calamari, and if you buy the ones that are cleaned for you, this dish can be made (start to finish) in less than thirty minutes. When your schedule is tight, and you need a good protein, this is an excellent choice. Let us know how yours turned out!
A Christian must be courteous to all. His words and deeds should breath with the grace of the Holy Spirit, which abides in his soul, so that in this way he might glorify the name of God. He who regulates all of his speech also regulates all of his actions. He who keeps watch over the words he is about say also keeps watch over the deeds he intends to do, and he never goes out of the bounds good and benevolent conduct. The graceful speech of a Christian is characterized by delicateness and politeness. This fact, born of love, produces peace and joy. On the other hand, boorishness gives birth to hatred, enmity, affliction, competitiveness, disorder and wars.
