  • 250 g cleaned fresh small calamari tubes and tentacles
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil, for moistening
  • 8 slices chorizo (about 35 g)
  • Fresh rocket leaves, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Rinse the calamari, drain and dry very well. Mix with a little seasoning and olive oil to moisten.

Heat a cast-iron grill pan until very hot, then quickly fry the chorizo. Add the calamari for a minute or two at the end of the cooking time and fry until just cooked and starting to catch.

Serve, garnished liberally with rocket.

Cook’s note: This tasty fry-up is the perfect partner to crusty sautéed potatoes or roast potato wedges.
