Marinated Grilled Squid

A quick and delicious way to enjoy calamari
Marinated Grilled Squid
Laura Edwards

Florian from Begur made me this dish with his catch of the day. He put the calamari on the plancha, and I remember we just sat in his garden on that glorious spring day and ate the lot! Such wonderful hospitality. The picture opposite is of Florian’s recipe – it tasted as incredible as it looks!

I’ve added a few more ingredients here and I think they’re a match made in heaven.— José Pizarro, author of Catalonia

Ingredients

  • 4 small fresh squid, cleaned and cut into large strips
  • 3 1/2 fl oz olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, bashed
  • Few sprigs of thyme or rosemary
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil to drizzle
  • Lemon wedges to serve

Directions

Put the squid in a container with the oil, garlic and herbs and leave to marinate for a few hours.

Heat a plancha or heavy-based pan to very hot. Cook the squid for 1–2 minutes each side until curled up and golden.

Season with sea salt and serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and lemon wedges to squeeze over.
