Charcoal BBQ Baby Squid

Matt Sinclair

Ingredients:

Serves: 4

  • 1kg Baby squid, cleaned
  • ½ Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • 2-3 Tbsp Malay curry powder
  • 2 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • ½ bunch fresh coriander
  • 2-3 spring onions, thinly sliced

Dipping Sauce:

  • 125ml white vinegar
  • 70g caster sugar
  • 40g green chilli, roughly chopped
  • 12g salt
  • ¼ Cucumber, roughly chopped
  • Lemongrass, white part only, outer layers removed, thinly sliced
  • Green Birdseye chilli, finely sliced

Method:

  1. Heat coals ahead of time, until white.
  2. Combine the oil, curry powder, fish sauce and garlic in a bowl and mix until the curry powder has dissolved. Taste and adjust seasoning if required. Marinade the squid in a non-reactive bowl, making sure to coat it evenly in the sauce, for a minimum of ½ hour.
  3. Make the dressing by adding all the ingredients together in a blender and blitz to combine. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Add the sliced lemongrass and Birdseye chillies and set aside in a dipping bowl until required.
  4. Lay the squid on the grill on top of the coals and bbq for 3-4 minutes, turning often to get even colour. Charred bits are definitely okay! Remove onto a chopping board and cut into bite-sized chunks and transfer to a serving plate.
  5. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and spring onion and serve the dipping sauce on the side. Serve hot.
