Grilled Stuffed Squid

Grilled Stuffed Squid @ Jatujak
Squid is referred to by a term related to the Italian "calamari" (singular:  calamaro), which is English has become the culinary name for Mediterranean dishes involving squid.  Calamari is a culinary treat made of squid that is native to Spanish, Italian and Greek cuisines.  It is generally garnished with parsley and lemon, and Italian restaurants often sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.  In the US, this dish is often served with marinara sauce.  Turkish and Greek culinary traditions pair this dish with cream sauce.

At home, this is how we usually eat squid---stuffed with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, calamansi and olive oil, then grilled over hot coals and served with spicy soy-vinegar dip.
