ok i was searching for a recipe for this and found none so am looking for insights and guidance -i tried it anyway and it worked ok will explain what i did and then ask insights
so basically made baked stuff clams
(2 cans chopped clams with juice)( i know i know this was an experiment)
garlic(i used 5 cloves but its up to you)
3/4 of an onions
tablespoon of olive oil
basil
orengano
italian seasoning
lemon juice(one lemon)
pat of butter
breadcrumbs (enough to make it look like a paste)
then took squid bodies and stuffed them with the mixture(it was a bit of a pain so any suggestions greatly appreciated)
poured over a little olive oil and baked in the oven at 350 for about an hour-it came out pretty well -the squid was very soft(not chewy at all)good flavors etc.

observations-things to do different next time
the stuffing came out of all the bodies as they shrunk with cooking(will try to tie them or close them some how
would probably add the tentacles and maybe some baby chopped up shrimp into the oreganata mixture next time
probably add more garlic
basically i am looking guidance/insights Thanks-T
