Method

Heat oil and garlic in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

When garlic begins to sizzle, add capers, oregano and chile flakes; cook, stirring until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and bring the mixture just to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until mixture has reduced slightly, about 15 minutes.

Add calamari, stir to combine and simmer until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add lemon zest, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
