  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • MAKE-AHEAD

Pinot Blanc, a relatively new varietal in Oregon, pairs well with olive oil and aromatics like fennel and coriander seeds. Save any leftover braising liquid for braising artichokes, tomatoes or red onions. Shelled shrimp could be substituted for the squid; braise them until pink.
