Spiced Shrimp and Calamari Sauté

  • SERVINGS: 8 FIRST-COURSE SERVINGS
  • FAST

This lemony, garlicky sauté is a lovely alternative to standard deep-fried shellfish. For a more substantial first course, serve it with whole pan-seared shrimp.

  1. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  3. 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  5. 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  6. 3/4 pound medium shrimp—shelled, deveined and cut into 1/2 -inch dice
  7. 3/4 pound cleaned small squid, bodies cut into 1/4 -inch rings, tentacles halved
  8. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  9. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  10. 1 serrano or jalapeño chile, seeded and finely chopped
  11. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  12. 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped mint
  13. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  1. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, salt, coriander, cardamom and paprika. Put the shrimp and squid in separate bowls and sprinkle them with the seasoning mixture. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to each bowl and toss to coat.
  2. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in a large heavy skillet. Add the onion and chile and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the onion and chile to a large bowl. Add the lemon juice, mint and lemon zest.
  3. Reheat the oil in the skillet. Add the shrimp and stir-fry over high heat until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to the onion mixture. Add the squid to the hot oil and stir-fry until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes; add to the shrimp and onion mixture and toss well. Serve warm or at room temperature.
