Preparation steps

1.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and egg with some seasoning until you have an even mixture. Stuff the squid tubes with this mixture until they are full. Cover and chill until needed.
2.
Prepare the soup base by heating the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes until hot. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato puree and cook while stirring occasionally for a further 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over and whisk well to combine. Add the Cognac and increase the heat to evaporate some of the alcohol.
3.
Reduce the heat at this point and add the fish stock, slowly whisking in until smooth. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
4.
Remove the stuffed squid tubes from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature. When ready to cook them, heat the sunflower oil with some of the butter in batches in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and pan fry the tubes until golden brown all over and the filling is hot.
5.
Reheat the soup to make sure it is piping hot and season it to taste. Ladle into serving bowls and add some of the stuffed squid. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and serve immediately.
