Squid in Red Wine Sauce


Squid in Red Wine Sauce

Cooking Time: 1 Hour Total Time: 1 Hour


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 pound cleaned squid, the bodies cut up if large
  • 1/2 cup fruity red wine, like Côtes-du-Rhône
  • Several sprigs fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, optional


  1. Put 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet with a lid, and turn the heat to medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until lightly browned. Add the squid and stir, then lower the heat, and add the wine. Stir, add the thyme, and cover.
  2. Cook at a slow simmer until the squid is tender, about 45 minutes. Uncover, season with salt and pepper to taste, raise the heat, and cook until most but not all of the liquid is evaporated. Stir in the remaining olive oil, garnish with parsley, and serve.
