Marinated Grilled Squid

A quick and delicious way to enjoy calamari

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.
