Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Melt 50g of the butter in a wide pan and cook the onion and garlic gently for 5 minutes but do not colour
2
Add the squid to the pan, season with a little salt and continue to cook for a further 3-4 minutes
3
Add 160ml of the red wine and turn up to a high heat. Cook until the wine is reduced to almost a glaze
4
Add the rest of the wine and reduce by 3/4
5
Add the tomato juice and mix well with the squid. Pour in the chicken stock, bring to the boil and turn down the heat so the squid is barely simmering
6
Cover the pan with a cartouche or round piece of greaseproof paper - this will allow for a more even cooking and ensure the squid remains submerged - flush against the contents and leave to cook for 60-90 minutes or until the squid becomes very tender. If the stock reduces too much before the squid has been cooked, add a little water
7
Once the squid is cooked and the sauce is thick, stir in the rest of the butter and the chopped parsley. Adjust the seasoning if necessary
8
Divide the braised squid and sauce across 4 plates and serve immediately
