This Grilled Calamari is grilled on a stick, which in my opinion, is just as good as fried! Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best and this is no exception. A squeeze of lime, some silky virgin olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper - so good and such an easy fish dish!
If possible get your fishmonger to clean the squid for you.
To tenderize the meat and remove some of the chewiness, soak the squid in either lemon juice or kiwi fruit juice for half an hour before cooking. The acidity helps to break down the texture. Alternatively, tenderize by soaking the squid in milk overnight, covered and refrigerated.
When grilling, thread squid bodies lengthwise onto skewers so they lie flat.
Calamari is a high protein, low fat meal so if you’d like to keep things healthy, serve it with a Greek Salad.
