Grilled Squid and Watercress Salad

recipe-01 This recipe will work as well using prawns instead of squid.
 
12 small quid (or 6 large ones), cleaned and tentacles seperated
Olive oil for marinade
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 medium red chillis
2 red peppers
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
juice of one lemon
6 tbsp olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
2 bags or bunches of watercress
small bunch fresh rocket
 

Marinate squid in some olive oil together with one of the garlic cloves and one chilli. Skin peppers and slice. Keep warm. In a bowl, make a dressing with the vinegar, lemon juice, 6 tbsp olive oil, the remaining garlic and chilli and seasoning. Toss the watercress, rocket and peppers in the dressing, arrange salad on 3 plates. Heat a griddle pan until very hot, cook squid including tentacles for 1-2 minutes; serve squid alongside salad. To complete the garnish, try slicing chive stalks into long, very fine, strips.
