Sautéed Calamari In Brown Butter

Sauteed Calamari In Brown Butter 1
Date nights are my favorite nights!!! I love to get all dolled up for my Hubby and go out for a glass of wine and a little bite (that I didn’t have to cook!)…One of the dishes we get at Moon & Raven Public House is their Sautéed Calamari. Well, it’s tax season and my excellent Hubby is a CPA. He and his partner, along with their excellent staff, are cranking day and night-  so Date Nights Out are a little more rare. Wanting to have Sautéed Calamari, I decided to come up with a dish of my own inspired by one of our favorite dishes. Late Night Date Night at home…

Sautéed Calamari In Brown Butter
1 lb fresh frozen calamari
1 shallot
2 cloves of garlic
4 tbs butter
1/4 cup basil chopped
1 can petite diced tomatoes, drained and rinsed
1 box linguine cooked according to package
1/2 cup white wine
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon juice
salt & pepper

In a sauté pan melt the butter on low and continue cooking on low until the butter begins to turn brown and has a nutty smell to it. Pour the butter into a small bowl and set aside. In the same pan add the oil and turn up the heat to medium. Add the shallots and garlic and cook for a few minutes. Next add the tomatoes and cook another 5 minutes. Next add the calamari and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Finally add the wine and lemon juice. Toss in the pasta and a little of the pasta water; top with basil and serve. Delicious!
