Chilli Squid and Avocado Salad

squid3

I’ve been enjoying a lot of grilled avocado this summer, the contrast of tastes smoky and creamy work really well together, and it’s been a real revelation for me. I’ve teamed the grilled avocado with chilli squid for this quick little recipe.

You need a red hot grill close to the coals to get the char on the squid without overcooking.

Score the squid tubes diagonally to stop them curling up and brush with the chilli sauce of your choice, I went for the Ribmans Holy F*ck, but also used a sweet chilli sauce for my wifes squid, they were both delicious.

I placed the squid and avocado on the grill for a couple of minutes each side, I squeezed a little lemon juice over both while cooking.

Transfer to the serving plate, and slice the squid into rings, scoop out the avocado and slice. Serve with a lovely fresh garden salad.

  1. This is, bar none, one of my favorite combinations to eat. The only thing I do differently is add a squeeze of fresh lime juice just before serving.

  5. Sounds good – I normally marinate squid in olive oil, chilli, garlic and lemon before cooking on the griddle. They are very good with chilli 😉
