Gluten free stuffed squid

Gluten free stuffed squids, Mediterranean style


This is my super personal gluten free variation of stuffed squids: a typical recipe from the South Italy. It normally includes eggs, parmesan and bread among the ingredients. My recipe uses only potatoes instead, making them gluten free and also leaving more space to the genuine sea food taste. It’s a good recipe to make in advance and to put in the oven at the last moment, too.

  • Chop the tentacles in small parts and pan roast the bites with garlic and oil in a saucepan. Then remove the garlic and add some fresh chopped parsley. Cook for 2 more minutes and then turn off.
  • Boil potatoes until soft and mashed them in a bowl.
  • Add the sautéed tentacles to the potatoes, along with finely chopped capers and olives. Mix all well: this is the super tasty stuffing of your squids. Adjust with salt by tasting, it really depends on the capers saltness.
  • Fill the squid with the stuffing, leaving it quite loose because they will reduce in size cooking.
  • Close the squids with a toothpicks and place them in a casserole with some extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Bake at 180°C for 25 minutes.
