Grilled Calamari

June 21, 2021

Hello Summer!

The beautiful Toronto weather had us grilling all weekend!

One of my favourite things to order when I eat out is grilled calamari, so when I saw whole calamari in the freezer section of my local grocery store, I was inspired to make this dish at home.

This dish is super easy to prepare and execute. I love that it is light, so it works great as an appetizer but also pairs well with any side as part of a main meal. The dressing is fresh and bright, perfect for summer


  • 4-6 frozen/fresh squid tubes
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste


  • If using frozen squid, thaw the squid completely
  • Wash/clean the squid tubes using cold water
  • Make incisions down the body of the squid tube, being sure to not cut all the way through
  • Season with olive oil and salt and set aside until you are ready to grill
  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and parsley. Season with salt
  • Grill the squid for 4 minutes on each side
  • Once the squid is cooked, cut the squid into rings, and pour the dressing over top, tossing to coat
