Section: Shellfish: Squid
Recipe: Grilled Calamari
1/4 c. olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (1 small lemon)
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
2 sprigs fresh oregano (or 1/2 tsp. dried)
1 lb. fresh squid, cleaned, rinsed, and well dried
freshly ground black pepper
In a serving bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.
Stir in the garlic and whole oregano sprigs.
Heat a grill pan over the high heat. (Alternatively, you can cook the
squid on the grill.) When very hot, add the squid and char each side for
1 minute. Remove from the pan and slice crosswise into 1/4-inch rings,
including the tendrils. Add the squid to the lemon sauce. Crack freshly
ground pepper over and serve immediately.
