Ginger-Coconut Calamari

 

Seared steaks of calamari are drizzled with a creamy ginger-coconut sauce. Calamari cooks quickly and is fairly affordable, so try this healthy protein at home especially with this rich & tasty sauce. Sweet white rice flour also known as mochiko makes a lovely crust on the calamari steaks, but your favorite all-purpose flour should work well.
Try this with the Lemon-Ginger Cauliflower

Preparation Instructions

Roughly chop the ginger, add to the white wine in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the sauce is reduced approximately in half.

Carefully open the coconut milk without shaking. Reserve the runny liquid for another use (such as cooking rice in it!) and scoop out the cream that floats to the top. Whisk this cream into the white wine sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Once it comes up to a simmer, strain off the ginger. Season with a pinch of the salt and black pepper.

Meanwhile, season the calamari steaks on each side with the salt and pepper. Sprinkle on the flour, dab and shake until there is an even coating all over the calamari steaks.

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. As soon as it melts, add the steaks. Sear on each side for about 1-3 minutes until a golden crust is formed. The thin steaks cook quickly, so take care.

Serve drizzled with the sauce on top.
