Special Diet




Main Ingredient





  • 2 lbs. medium squid rinsed
  • 2 celery ribs cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/3 cup fresh flat leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion halved lengthwise, then thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1/3 cup San-J Gluten Free Tamari
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1/6 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme freshly chopped
  • 1/4 cup peanuts finely chopped


  • Rinse squid inside and out with cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. Halve tentacles lengthwise and cut bodies crosswise into 1/4-inch-wide rings. Boil a large pot of salted water. Add squid; cook in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and immediately transfer to a large bowl filled with ice and cold water. Let cool for 3-4 minutes, then drain and pat dry. In a large bowl, combine squid, celery, parsley, cilantro, onion and green onions. In a small bowl, whisk San-J Gluten Free Tamari, sesame oil, chili powder and pepper.
  • Gently toss squid mixture with tamari dressing. Set aside for 20 minutes to absorb flavor. Serve calamari mixture atop a bed of arugula and spinach. Sprinkle with fresh thyme and peanuts.
