Ingredients

  • 3 pounds small fingerling potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons sea salt
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound frozen cleaned calamari (tubes and tentacles), thawed and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Red Wine Vinaigrette
