Calamari with tricolor carrots & ginger

Ingredients
Calamaries
Extra virgin olive oil
Tri-color Carrots (Slow Food Presidium)
Salt, pepper, sweet herbs
Ginger and lemon drops

Preparation
Clean the calamari and remove the entrails, then cut the calamari in half lengthwise so as to open them, and incise the belly with diagonal cuts.
Heat some olive oil in a pan, then add the calamari and sauté for two minutes. You can note that with the temperature difference and thanks to the diagonal cuts the calamari will curl during cooking. Once sautéed place the squid into the oven for about 5 minutes at 180 °.
To prepare the vegetables pick a mix of tricolor carrots (yellow, orange and purple), wash and cut them into thin julienne strips; then leave them to marinate in olive oil with salt, pepper and sweet herbs. Finally for the ginger coulis grate the peeled root and marinate it with olive oil and a few drops of lemon.
Plate up the carrots then overlie the calamari and season with a few drops of ginger sauce. Enjoy the explosion of flavors of this dish and Buon appetito!
