Spicy Calamari With Bacon and Scallions

“Really simple yet the flavors are quite complex. From the November, 2007 edition of Gourmet. It's supposed to serve four as a main course; we found it sufficient for three as a starter (either a tribute to the recipe or just further proof that we love to eat)”
