Grilled Calamari

Recipe by Tina Gravalos






Serves 03

Don’t be afraid to make calamari at home. It’s actually super simple and takes less than 10 minutes to grill! Make it as an appetizer or into a salad over a bed of greens. Major Mediterranean vibes with these simple flavours and you’re getting some nutrients in too (good source of protein).


  1. 1

    Lightly score each calamari tube, horizontally, each cut about 1 ½ inches apart.

  2. 2

    In a mixing bowl, add the calamari, 1/3 cup of olive oil, ½ tsp sea salt, ½ tsp black pepper and paprika. Mix to combine. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  3. 3

    In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, ¼ tsp of sea salt, ¼ tsp black pepper and whisk. When the calamari is ready, pour it on top.

  4. 4

    Preheat your grill to about 450 degrees F. Grill each calamari tube for 3-4 minutes per side, depending on the size.

  5. 5

    Serve as an appetizer or over some greens to make it a meal.

  6. 6

    Note: You can purchase calamari tubes that are already cleaned for you. It’s also important to give them a little rinse and have a look at them to see if anything was missed.
