Created by: Jean-Michel Cousteau.
Separate head from body, reserving legs and ink sac.
Chop legs and reserve.
Squeeze ink from sac into small bowl and reserve ink.
Remove quill from body and peel off outer skin of squid.
Set squid aside Heat half of oil in large skillet over medium coals or on stovetop. Add onion, garlic, lemon, bay leaves, thyme and paprika and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook until onion is translucent. Mix ink with flour to make paste. Add chopped legs, half of onion mixture from pan and half of rice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stuff squid with rice mixture and secure opening with wood picks. Heat remaining onion mixture in skillet. Place stuffed squid in pan and cook, turning often, until golden on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove squid and bay leaves and spread remaining rice in layer in pan. Arrange squid over rice, cover and cook 10 minutes longer. Serve squid over rice and garnish with parsley sprigs and lemon wedges, if desired.
