Grilled Calamari | Served with Garlic Cauliflower Rice & Sriracha

Squid, or as we like to call it Calamari, is the chicken of the ocean, plentiful, tender, and healthy for all. This recipe is a quick 30 minutes and fun to make.

We start out by rinsing the calamari tubes and bodies and then drying them with a paper towel. We then coat them in an olive oil mixture with salt, pepper, and oregano and let them marinate for 10-15 minutes. To finish, we head out to our grill and cook them for 5-10 minutes occasionally flipping to each siding and rotating them around the grill. To plate, we serve the calamari on top of a garlic infused bed of cauliflower rice topped with sriracha sauce.

Enjoy!

Instructions

Grilled Calamari

  1. Start grill and warm to a medium heat. Clean the calamari tubes and bodies and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Create marinade with olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, and lemon. Place calamari into marinade and let it season.
  3. Place calamari tubes and tentacles on grill for 5-10 minutes. Flip occasionally to prevent them from getting burned. Note: the bodies will most likely cook quicker than the tubes, be sure to remove first.
  4. Once grilled, remove the calamari tubes and slice them into bite size pieces to lay upon the bed of cauliflower rice.
