Serves: 2
Large squid are stuffed and grilled to perfection.
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup minced Cilantro Stems
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • 2 Large Squids, cleaned
  1. In a skillet, heat one tablespoon of oil and add garlic and onions. Cook for a minute and add the tomatoes. Cook for a few more minutes until the onions are translucent and the tomatoes have started to render some juice.
  2. Add the chopped squid parts. Stir. Season with red pepper flakes and salt. Cook only until the squid is barely cooked, as soon as they turn white.
  3. Cool before stuffing into the squid body. Seal ends of the squid with toothpick so the stuffing does not fall out during grilling.
  4. Grill only until it's just done. Don't overcook.
