Step 1

Wash the calamari well, and slice it into 1 inch thick circles.

In a pan, heat the butter and the oil and cook the garlic through. Add the calamari, salt and pepper. Cook on low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the calamari is almost cooked through.

Step 3

Add the tomatoes to the pan, and cook for 10 more minutes.

Step 4

Add the rice to the pan, and cook until it becomes transparent. Then cover with the fish stock or water.
