A variety of squid and octopus appear in Spanish seafood conservas by different names; pulpo, calamares, chipirones. What are chipirones? The smallest of the squid. So there you have it. In this quick and delicious recipe chef Andy Suarez pan-fries them along with a romesco-esque sauce you can put together for a simple lunch or dinner or whatever meal the clock says is upcoming. 

Small Squid with Piquillo Pepper Sauce

Total Time: 10-15 minutes. Makes a serving or two, we'll say.

Ingredients

Directions

1. In a food processor or blender, combine piquillo peppers, sherry vinegar, and olive oil and blend until you've achieved the desired smoothness. Season as you wish.

2. Pan-fry the chipirones over medium heat in the oil from the tin itself until they become golden brown and undeniably appetizing.

3. The green bits of scallion and a squeeze of lemon will finish it off.
