Lemon and garlic squid

A simple but tasty way to enjoy squid. Make sure your pan is super-hot to get char marks without overcooking the squid.

How long will it take?

2 hours 10 minutes

What’s the serving size?

Serves 4


What do I need?

  • 4 squid tubes
  • Olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Large pinch of cumin
  • Zest and juice of one lemon

How do I make it?

  1. Make a cut down one side of the squid tube to open it up.
  2. Mix lemon zest, cumin, salt and pepper, garlic and olive oil together in a shallow dish. Place squid tubes in the mixture and put in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Heat a grill pan or barbecue until very hot.
  4. Remove squid tubes from marinade and grill on each side for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove from hot grill and serve with a sprinkle of sea salt and the juice of the lemon.
