3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ teaspoon Spanish paprika
3 tablespoons honey
1 ½ pounds small calamari rings
In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and ½ teaspoon of the salt with all of the garlic, pepper, lemon juice, paprika and honey.
In a medium bowl, coat the calamari with the remaining olive oil and salt.
Heat a heavy, dry skillet over high heat. Add the calamari to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Don’t overcrowd the skillet: cook the calamari in batches if necessary.
Transfer the cooked calamari to a serving dish and immediately pour over the sauce. Serve immediately.
