Spicy Calamari with Bacon and Scallions
1 1/2 pound scleaned medium squid
1/4 pound bacon (about 5 slices), cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
1 cup chopped scallions
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red-pepper flakes

Rinse squid under cold water, then pat dry between paper towels. Halve
large tentacles lengthwise and cut bodies (including flaps, if attached)
crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide rings.

Cook bacon in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring
occasionally, until golden and crisp, then transfer with a slotted spoon to
paper towels to drain.

Toss squid with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Heat fat remaining in skillet over high heat until very hot, then sauté
squid with scallions and red-pepper flakes until just cooked through, about
3 minutes.

Serve squid immediately, sprinkled with bacon.
