An ideal snack or finger food that is simple enough to take outdoors, yet fancy enough to impress your friends. Jokingly it really is just Fish and Chips.
Barbecued Stuffed Squid is packed with basil and tomato rice, chorizo and red capsicum. It is drizzled with honey and hot sauce for a sweet and spicy kick.
If you’ve never cooked squid before, don’t be intimidated. Always use the freshest squid available for the best flavor, and clean it well before cooking.
This dish can be served as a first course or the main dish. Serve it alongside Mediterranean-inspired sides, for an extra-special meal.
