Marinated squid. Who would have thought? Going to the Marché du Midi, which is our local Sunday market, we bought fresh squid. Nothing unusual about that, as I love squid. But we always end up preparing it fried. So this time around I looked for a different recipe, where I could be more creative with the squid. And I came across marinated squid, a fresh, cold starter just perfect for this sunny, hot Sunday.
Again, this is a recipe to be adapted by everyone according to personal taste, and likes or dislikes. I personally like spicy food. Maybe too much so. If I can bring some spice into the food, I will go to extra lengths to do so. Marinating squid is not difficult.
First of all clean the squid, and tentacles. I used only the tentacles for this recipe. The body will be stuffed, and prepared for dinner. After cleaning the tentacles, boil them for 2 to 3 min (or until tender). Then prepare the marinade according to taste. I used chopped coriander, onion, garlic, and of course chilli. Then just toss the whole in olive oil (spicy if you have), wine vinegar, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Refrigerate for 3 to 4h, and you have a very refreshing and tasty starter. Spicy marinated squid.
