Chilli Squid and Avocado Salad

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.

 

Sumac and Wild Garlic Crusted Dirty Lamb Steaks

Sorry guys, am on a bit of a roll with the “Dirty” style of BBQ at the moment, and am coming u with some amazing new recipes that I just want to share. These wonderful lamb leg steaks just screamed at me to cook them “Dirty”. Fire and lamb are a heavenly match.

Sumac is an intensely fruity slightly sharp spice from the Middle East and Med, and goes perfectly with lamb. I used a baste of 2tbsp sumac, 2 tbsp rock salt, a bunch of wild garlic, 4tbsp olive oil, 1 garlic clove, a sprig or two of flat leaf parsley, a tsp of black pepper, and the juice of half a lemon, all blitzed up in a spice grinder.

Place the lamb steaks straight on the coals and brush generously with the sumac baste as they cook, a couple of minutes a side should do it, until they are medium rare. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes before getting stuck into the juicy steak.

I enjoyed mine with a wild garlic, feta, olive and baby tomato salad.
