Grilled Marinated Calamari

This unusual way to serve calamari (squid) is quick, easy and tasty.


  • 2 T Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • 1 T Olive Oil (+1 t olive oil)
  • 2 T Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 lb Squid (+4 ounces, small squid)
  • 2 t Dijon Mustard
  • 1⁄2 t Thyme
  • 1⁄2 t salt
  • 1⁄4 t Red Pepper (crushed, flakes)


Marinate the squid briefly before cooking, or grill them plain and toss with the marinade as a dressing before serving.

Prepare grill for a hot fire. Spray a grill basket with nonstick cooking spray. In medium bowl, combine juice, vinegar, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper flakes; whisk in oil a little at a time. Add squid and toss well to coat. With slotted spoon, transfer squid to prepared grill basket and grill over high heat, turning constantly and brushing with remaining marinade, 7-9 minutes, until golden and slightly charred. Slice squid into 1/2” pieces. Divide evenly among 4 warm plates, garnish with lemon wedges and serve.
