  • 2 tbsp of fresh orange juice and 1 tsp of finely grated orange zest
  • 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 fresh red chilli, cored, seeded and chopped fine
  • Freshly ground black pepper and salt


Slice squid into half-inch rings, toss in 2tbs oilve oil and season generously. Set aside.

Whisk orange juice, zest and balsamic together, then the olive oil in a slow stream. Add chilli, coriander, salt and pepper.
