Grilled Squid Salad

- Amanda

Every cook has dishes that she orders when in a restaurant but never makes at home. Let's call these barrier recipes. In the spirit of trying to get past my own barrier recipes -- which usually involve shellfish or a grill -- I've recreated the squid salad that I order every time we go to Motorino. I grilled the squid to give it a little char and then tumbled it together with whole parsley leaves, slices of boiled potato, some capers, red pepper flakes, and a dousing of lemon. It took 10 minutes. And I felt pretty dumb for not tackling this sooner. Watch out clams: I'm coming after you next!

Grilled Squid Salad with Lemon, Capers, and Parsley

Serves 4

  • 3/4 pound squid
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more if needed
  • 6 baby white potatoes (or any small variety), boiled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup flatleaf parsley leaves
  • Grated zest of 1/2 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and coarsely chopped
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

OMG, so fast, so fresh tasting! Used out Weber Q Grill on our terrace and once the potatoes are cooked the whole dish was ready in 15 minutes! Thanks!!
