Calamari Skewers with Pistachios: very tender kebabs with a tasty breading with pistachios. They are very easy. The only caution is to do the cooking times: Squid must be cooked or little or a lot. If you make a mistake while cooking you are likely to make them chewy. I used thawed squid (the price indicated in the recipe is in fact related to the purchase of the product defrosted). They came yummy! If we can use fresh squid (alas more expensive ....) we will have a dish tastes great.
