Bless the Aussies, they do love a barbecue.

Forget squid rings in batter, try this quickly cooked calamari instead. You don’t need a barbecue, you can substitute a griddle pan instead.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 large avocado thinly sliced
  • 6 squid tubes calamari
  • 1 light tasty cheese deseeded, thinly sliced
  • 1 long red chilli deseeded
  • 1 bunch coriander with stalks
  • 125 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 tbs rice wine vinegar
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbs sweet chilli sauce
  • 120 g baby rocket leaves
  • 1 tbs salt-reduced soy sauce

Instructions

  • Finely chop 4 coriander roots and pick off sprigs. Set aside. Juice lime and finely chop chilli. Combine coriander roots, lime juice and chilli in a large glass bowl with vinegar and sauces and stir well.
  • Cut calamari tubes along one side and open out flat. Score with a shallow diamond pattern over inside of tubes then cut into large pieces. Add to marinade, stir and cover for 1 hour, if time permits.
  • Meanwhile, arrange rocket, capsicum, avocado and cherry tomatoes on a platter. Drizzle with oil.
  • Heat a barbecue hot plate over medium heat. Cook calamari on barbecue for 3 minutes or until charred and squid is cooked through. Transfer to platter with salad. Garnish with coriander.

Notes

If you want a bit more heat, don’t deseed the chilli!
