Charred on the grill in mere moments, squid is the perfect vehicle for a zingy dressing.

Share recipe


  • 280g whole squid tubes (around 6 tubes)
  • 3 tsp olive oil, plus 1 tsp to drizzle on the squid before cooking
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus a pinch for the dressing
  • 2 limes, zest & juice
  • 2 green chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 20g coriander, chopped


Step 1

Take the squid tubes and place them on a chopping board. Pat them dry with a piece of kitchen paper and drizzle over the olive oil. Use your hands to rub the salt and pepper all over the squid tubes, inside and out.

Step 2

Take 3 metal skewers and thread the tubes onto them as if you were sewing – up and down and up and down through the middle. Leave to one side while you make the dressing.

Step 3

Put all the dressing ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

Step 4

Next, place the squid skewers over the hottest part of the BBQ and cook for 2 mins before turning and cooking for another 2 mins. They should take on some lovely charring very quickly. If anything still looks a little translucent then give it another min each side.

Step 5

Carefully slide the squid off the hot skewers and onto a chopping board. Slice into rings and put them into the dressing while still hot. Toss and serve immediately. TIP: Keep an eye on the time, squid can go rubbery if it’s cooked for too long. You can also cook this in a very hot frying pan – follow the above cooking times.
