Fried Calamari Party Platter | The Town DockThe holiday season is in full swing – Halloween has come and gone, leaving behind its sneakiest of tricks: the leftover treats invading workplaces from coast to coast. Thankfully, it’s time to look onward to holidays that bring people together and to the dinner table.

From lite and fresh to hearty and robust, we have you covered when it comes to preparing the perfect calamari dishes for all of your holiday events and family meals.

We scoured recipe books, spoke to friends and family, and of course reached out to our fisherman. The results have left our mouths watering! We recommend the following holiday menu which features fresh calamari as the main ingredient, adorned with garlic, thyme, basil, tomatoes, leeks, parmesan cheese, imported Italian olive oil, and more. Simply delicious!
