1 cup Yellow Onions, finely chopped
2 cups Cioppino Base

  1. Pre-heat the grill making sure the grill grates are cleaned and seasoned. 
  2. In a bowl add squid, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a pinch of salt, and black pepper. Mix and then grill them for about 1-2 minutes to get some char marks. Remove and set to a side. 
  3. In a large skillet over medium to low heat add olive oil, garlic, and onions. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes and then add tomatoes and green olives. Season with a pinch of salt and black pepper, stir, and let it cook for about 3-5 minutes.
