Atún en Salsa de Tomate PicanteBy tapasonlineTuna with spicy tomato sauce- this recipe makes quite a dry dish, but if you prefer more sauce, simply add more tomato and white wine, adjusting the seasoning if you wish. Frozen tuna is fine - defrost it in the refrigerator before using.
Atún en AdoboBy tapasonlinePan-fried marinated tuna - use good quality tuna for this recipe - frozen is fine; just defrost in the refrigerator before dicing.

Patatas con CalamaresBy tapasonlinePotatoes with cuttlefish - Traditionally, this recipe from Andalucia uses cuttlefish (sepia or choco) and if you can obtain some, that is more authentic, but squid is fine.
