Spicy charred calamari recipePhoto by Roberto Caruso
, about 600 g, thawed and cleaned
1 1/2 tsp
- Preheat barbecue to medium-high.
- Pat squid dry with paper towels. Leaving one seam on each squid body intact, use clean kitchen shears to cut 1/2-in.-wide rings horizontally. (It will look like a row of rings held together by one seam.) Toss squid with oil, chili-garlic sauce and salt in a medium bowl until coated.
- Oil grill, then barbecue squid, until slightly charred and just tender, 1 to 2 min per side. Serve with shallots and Asian noodle salad.
Crispy shallots can be found in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets.
Indoor Grilling Tip
Heat a grill pan over high. Lightly spray with oil, then add squid. Grill until squid is cooked but still tender, about 1 min per side.

SPICY SQUID | FRUITY BLEND
Fruity and flowery, this California white is almost too easy to love. Its bold citrus and tropical flavours elevate the Spicy Charred Calamari, while a hint of sweetness counters the hot chili and garlic.
