Main

1.For salsa aglio, heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add potato and onion, sauté until starting to soften (5-7 minutes). Add garlic, stir occasionally until starting to soften (4-5 minutes). Add stock, reduce heat to low, simmer until potato is very soft (30-40 minutes), remove from heat, cool slightly. Process in a food processor until just smooth, season to taste, fold through mascarpone and set aside.
2.Whisk olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl, season to taste and set aside.
3.Preheat oil in a deep-fryer or deep-sided frying pan to 200C. Dust calamari in seasoned flour, shake off excess and deep-fry in batches until golden (2-3 minutes). Drain on absorbent paper, season to taste and serve hot with salsa aglio and rocket drizzled with dressing.

Young garlic is available from select greengrocers. If unavailable, use half the amount of regular garlic.
