Squid and Rice in Ink

Squid close up
Originally uploaded by EatingVideo
My son really likes squid and particularly dishes cooked with squid ink. We where facing an all men meal, as the girls had eaten earlier so we went with a seafood rice dish in squid ink.
For 2
4 mussells
6 small shrimp
2 scallops sliced into three pieces each
8-12 squid depending on size
1 cup of rice
squid ink (usually comes in a packet, but if you get fresh squid you may be able to harvest it)
1/2 an onion
3 cloves of garlic
2 cups seafood stock if available.

Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil till soft and fragrant.
add all the seafood and sautee till barely cooked at high heat.
add rice and mix till rice is coated in oil.
add 2 cups of liquid and packet of squid ink (you may want to mix the ink in the liquid prior to adding)
bring to a boil then turn to low heat and cook for 12-15 minutes

squid ink rice

Very tasty

I wanna eat this! I have seen recipes for this that call it Forbidden Rice. How mysterious!

it is one of my son's favorite dishes. It is easy as long as you score some ink, and it could have used two packs.
