If your image of eating squid is comparable to eating elastic bands, then do try this way of cooking them – the high heat and literally seconds in the oven means your squid will be meltingly tender and delicious, not an elastic band in sight! You can also cook cuttlefish in the same way.
It’s one of those dishes where you cook it and eat it so make sure all your prep is done in advance and that your friends and family are ready to eat as soon as it comes out of the oven. A squeeze of lemon and a dunk in some mayo is all you need as accompaniments.
Make sure your oven is well heated and you have a good fire burning – you want it around 325°C on the base of the oven floor, so just slightly less than for cooking pizza. You’ll also need a good wide pan that won’t warp in the heat of the oven – we use an old cast iron frying pan that’s been handed down generations.
Serves 4-6 as a starter or as nibbles
