Thrapsala (Illex coindetti or shortfin squid) are of the same family as calamari but much more cheaper, at least here in Greece, but equally delicious.
Kalamaria (pr. kah-lah-MAHR-ghia), is a very popular dish in Greece and Cyprus, especially during Lent when seafood is allowed to be eaten.
Although we can eat all sorts of delicious food during Lent I find it difficult to cook dried legumes or just vegetables on Sundays as Ι have always connected Sunday cooking with meat dishes.
This Linguine with Calamari dish is delicious and full of Greek flavours.
Kalamari or Calamari is the culinary name for squid and is very popular in Greece, as it is a delicacy found on the menu of almost all the Greek restaurants.
