Hello all, I am seeking help in locating a recipe or in recreating it in some way and hoping someone knows the recipe or of an original recipe that is very similar please. Mario Batali has a similar sauce flavour in Calamari Neapolitan but Topos was a more textured tomato base.
Many years ago in Victoria, B,C. I used to take clients and such to Topos restarante and I nearly always had a tomato based, garlic and finely chopped calamari dish. Mouth watering as I write here. Topos closed up perhaps 6-10 or so years back and had a Scottish chef owner. The Italian food was brilliant and was quite authentic as I was told the chef trained in Italy and as I have been to Italy many times as a Paratrooper:-) (I originally trained as a Chef right from school)
The dish was very finely chopped calamari nestled in a sauce like Calamari Neapolitan-style but rather than a soupy sauce base it was a textured finely chopped tomato and roasted garlic based sauce?
Anyone have a recipe I can try as an old ex military, now gimpy, (disabled) wanna be cook:-)
All help greatly appreciated.
