Seared Squid with Spicy Mayo
Seared Squid with Spicy Mayo



  • 500g squid tubes, halved and scored
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juice only
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 60g watercress
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml veg oil
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • Make the mayo by blanching the watercress in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain under cold water to cool, the blend in a bowl with the remaining ingredients, plus plenty of seasoning, with a stick blender until a smooth mayonnaise is achieved.
  • Preheat a griddle pan, season the squid with salt and pepper, and drizzle with oil, then cook for 2 minutes on one side, and another minute on the other. Mix half the lemon juice with the chillies, remove the griddle from the heat, and pour this mixture over the squid. Serve on a bed of rocket and watercress, with a big dollop of the mayo. Yum!
