Ingredients
  

  • 2 Large Calamari
  • 1 1/2 cup Feta Cheese cubed
  • 1/2 fresh Dill chopped
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup White Long Grain Rice
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 1 Garlic Clove crushed
  • 3/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup White Dry Wine
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions
 

  • Chop the Tentacles into small pieces.
  • In a small frying pan add a bit of olive oil and fry tentacles, garlic, onion for about 10 minutes and then set aside to cool off.
  • Once the tentacles have cooled off add rice, feta, egg, dill, salt and pepper and mix. (you can add fresh tomatoes into the mix to give it a bit of a sweet taste and color)
  • Add 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil.
  • Take one Calamari tube at a time and start to stuff with the mix, but be sure not to stuff all of it, leave some room towards the end so that you can sew/close off the opening with a toothpick. Once done with the stuffing take a toothpick and close off the opening of the Calamari.
  • Pour the remaining olive oil and wine over the Calamari and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown.
