Ingredients

  • 650 g loligo squid, cleaned (see notes)
  • 1 lime, zest finely grated, juiced
  • 1 medium red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 Granny Smith apple , see notes
  • 1 cup bean sprouts, trimmed
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 spring onions (scallions), finely sliced on the diagonal
  • 12 baby cos lettuce leaves

For dressing

  • tablespoons lime juice
  • tablespoons fish sauce
  • tablespoons grated palm sugar , see notes
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Cut squid hoods down one side and open out flat. Score the inside of the flesh with angled cuts, turn the hoods around and repeat so that the cuts form a crosshatched pattern. Slice into bite-sized pieces. Cut tentacles into sections. Combine lime juice and zest, chilli and garlic. Toss through squid, cover and set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat a barbecue or char-grill plate until very hot.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Barbecue squid, in batches if necessary, until it just turns white. Remove from grill and toss with dressing. Set aside to cool.
  • Cut apple into thin matchsticks and mix through squid with bean sprouts, coriander, mint and spring onion.
  • Spoon squid mixture into lettuce leaves and serve.

Notes

  • Seafood substitutes - Cuttlefish, Gould's Squid, or Octopus (omit scoring, cut into quarters).
  • Apple substitutes - When Granny Smiths are not available, use another firm apple suitable for cooking and baking. To name a few: Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Jonathan, and Braeburn. For more complex flavour, try a mixture of two or three different varieties.
  • Palm Sugar substitute - Maple sugar or brown sugar blended with a little maple syrup to moisten
