This deceptively simple grilled squid recipe uses a fantastic cumin marinade for a Middle Eastern twist that makes for a quick and easy midweek meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium-sized squid weighing about 150g each, or 8 smaller ones, cleaned
  • A little olive oil, for grilling and drizzling

For the spice mix

  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1/2tsp paprika
  • 2tsp ground cumin
  • 2tsp sea salt

Method

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together for the spice mix, then coat the squid in the marinade and chill for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat a barbecue or ridged griddle pan. Lightly oil the grill and cook the squid for 2-3 minutes on each side. Drizzle with olive oil and serve with a crisp green salad and lemon wedges.
