  Categories: Appetizers, Seafood
       Yield: 4 Servings
 
   1 1/4 lb Calamari And Tenacles, Clean
       3 tb Olive Oil, Virgin
       1    Dry Red Chile Pepper, Broken
       3 lg Onions
            Salt & Pepper To Taste
 
   Clean calamari and cut tubes crosswise into 1/2 rings. Dry calamari on
   paper towels and reserve. In a medium frying pan, heat 1 Tbs. oil over
   medium-high heat. Add the calamari and saute until the rings turn
 opaque
   white, about 30 seconds to one minute. Transfer calamari to a bowl and
 set
   aside. Wipe pan dry, add remaining oil and heat. Add chile pepper and
 heat
   until it turns dark. Remove chile with a slotted spoon and discard. Add
 the
   onions to the hot chile oil and cook, stirring, until onions are
 wilted,
   about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, partially cover pan and cook,
   stirring occasionally, until onions are caramelized (golden brown),
 30-40
   minutes. (Add more oil if onions are dry or stick to the pan). Season
 with
   salt/pepper. Add calamari and stir until heated throughout. Serve with
   slices of hot or toasted French bread.
