3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 pounds cleaned squid, the bodies cut up if large
1 cup fruity red wine, like Côtes-du-Rhône
Several sprigs fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish, optional
Put 2 tablespoons 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. 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.
Squid will become rubbery if reheated
