In the kitchen:
  • Clean out the heads of the squids. Remove the beaks, located at the junction of the tentacles. Rinse well and blot dry.
  • Cut off the tentacles and chop finely. Put them in a bowl.
  • Grate the bread, cheese and garlic and add it to the bowl.
  • Wash the parsley, chop it finely and mix it into the bowl.
  • Add the lemon zest, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the raisins and pine nuts.
  • Using a teaspoon, fill the heads of the squids with the filling. Close with a toothpick and set aside.
  • Now make the salad. Rinse the fennel, remove the outer leaves, cut in half and then in julienne strips.
  • Peel the oranges and cut into wedges – making sure to remove the membranes.
  • Clean the spring onions and cut into small rings.
  • Add to the fennel mix with the olives.
  • Season liberally with olive oil, salt and pepper. Add the vinegar and stir.
  • Check the seasoning and set aside.
At the barbecue:
  • Prepare the barbecue for direct heat – approx. 160 ºC. Place the sear grate or griddle on the barbecue and let it preheat for 10 minutes.
  • Brush the squids with olive oil and grill for 12-14 minutes. Turn them every 3 minutes.
  • When the squids have clear grill marks and are brown and crispy – remove them from the barbecue.
  • Serve with the salad.
