  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsp white wine
  • pinch of sea salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • fresh lemon wedges


  1. Thinly slice 4 cloves of garlic, de-seed a mild hot pepper and thinly slice it, for the 2 tubes of squid, if you´re using frozen tubes of squid, thaw them out, then rinse them under cold water and pat them completely dry, score each tube diagonally on both directions to end up with small diamond designs, do not cut all the way through, just shallow cuts, then rub some extra virgin Spanish olive oil all over and season them with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper on both sides

  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan with a medium-high heat, after 2 minutes add the tubes of squid scored side down, after 60-90 seconds flip them, after another 60-90 seconds remove the tubes of squid from the pan and set them aside on a plate

  3. Using the same pan with the same heat add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin Spanish olive oil, then add the slices of garlic and slices of hot pepper and mix them with the oil, scrape anything that was left over from the squid, about 1 minute later add 3 tablespoons of white wine, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice (about 1 tsp), 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped parsley and season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, about 2 minutes after adding the wine the sauce is done, drizzle it over the squid steaks and garnish the dish with some lemon wedges and freshly chopped parsley, enjoy!
