How long do you cook calamari in red sauce?

Answer »
Erica,Schneid added over 2 years ago

Calamari has to be cooked quickly or for a long time. We usually let it simmer in the red sauce for about 2 hours... Sometimes we let it keep going if we are still cooking other things and it stays perfectly tender.

I prefer to cook it quickly. . . otherwise it has the tendency to get tough and chewy. Here is my recipe for cooking squid in a red sauce with the addition of mussels. I make this for my family every year for Christmas Eve dinner. http://www.food52.com/recipes...

The usual rule for squid is less than 3 minutes or more than 3 hours. Anything in-between will turn it into rubber.

If your frying or grilling, no more than 3 minutes. If you're cooking it in gravy, I would opt for the 3 hours. It won't be rubbery.
