"I don’t know about yourselves guys but when it comes to seafood, I could feed on it all day long seven days a week! Yes, you guessed it! I love seafood. It could be because I’m a Piscean? Or it could be just because seafood rocks!? A bit of both, I’m sure. It is light and pretty healthy too rich in vitamins, minerals and healthy omega 3 oils which help us stay away from the cardiologist. Here is this very simple and delightful recipe."

NotesIt can't get any better! Oh, actually, yes, a glass of white will be just what was missing but okay if you give the wine a miss. Enjoy this heavenly divine dish as a fabulous starter.

Serves2 People

Preparation Time20 min

Cooking Time15 min


  • 4 large squid tubes
  • 1 pinch himalayan salt
  • pepper freshly ground
  • cajun powder
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 lemon (or lemon juice) to serve
  • 3-4 tbsp Olive oil
  1. Wash thoroughly the squid, cut into rings about 1 cm thick sprinkle some salt and rest aside in a sieve to drain properly.

  2. Peel the garlic, crush and chop coarsely.

  3. Place a nonstick frying pan on a medium heat. Put half of the oil and when it pretty hot place the squid rings in. There will be some water released but if it's not too much leave it. It will evaporate as you cook the squids. If it is quite a lot of water just dispose of some. Just to have an idea on 'allowed', there should be roughly about 4 spoonful of liquid which is enough to cook the squid. Keep on stirring pretty much continuously until the water has all run out. The whole thing shouldn't take longer than 12-13 min.

  4. When the squid is cooked add the remainder of the oil, the garlic, the cayenne pepper and the Cajun powder.

  5. Toss in the frying pan for about one minute and take off the heat.

  6. Place in a serving plate and enjoy with an extra pinch of freshly ground pepper and a good squeeze of a lemon.
