Grilled Calamari Salad With Frisee And Israeli Couscous

> > > While the old standby of fried calamari can be a wonderful dish, what one usually gets in a run of the mill restaurant are rubbery, underseasoned, overbreaded,  tasteless poor cousins of the real deal.

They must be crisp on the outside, medium-rare to medium (depending on your preference) on the inside and spicy but not mouthburningly so. Seem’s easy enough, as long as you know how to handle VERY HOT fat. […]
