Zesty Spicy Squid Salad
Zesty Spicy Squid Salad



  • 3 chillies, halved, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 whole squid tubes, cleaned and cut into rings
  • 2 big avocados, stoned and sliced
  • 3 limes, halved
  • 100g rocket or similar leaves
  • 3 tbsp crispy onions
  • Mix together the olive oil, 2/3 of the chillies and the squid in a bowl, cover and leave to marinate for at least one hour.
  • Before you’re ready to serve (this is a quick dish to put together), put some rocket and avocado on your plates, and get a griddle pan or barbecue all fired up and raring to go. Once it’s hot and almost smoking, add the limes - cut side down - and then chuck in the squid.
  • You want to cook the squid for about 2 minutes, or until it starts to feel firm. Try not to overcook it, because it becomes too chewy all too quickly! As soon as they’re ready, remove from the pan and onto a board or into a bowl.
  • Serve by putting the squid rings on top of the salad, and then scatter the crispy onions over the top. Chuck the remaining chillies and oil over the whole lot, and finish with a good squeeze of the charred lime.
