 Ingredients List

  • ----------------------------------MARINADE----------------------------------
  • 1 ts Fresh parsley; chopped
  • 1 tb Garlic; finely chopped
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Paprika
  • 1/2 sm Jalapeno chile; seed/mince
  • 1 lb Squid; cleaned/in 1" rounds


1 tb Garlic; finely chopped
1 tb Fresh rosemary; fine chop
1/2 c Dry white wine
1/2 c Clam juice
1 tb Lobster base;*
2 tb Whipped butter

* Lobster base is a glaze sold in gourmet food shops and some supermarkets

1. Prepare marinade: Thoroughly whisk together all marinade ingredients in
a glass or stainless-steel bowl. Add squid pieces and marinate at least 3
hours, stirring occasionally.

2. To make sauce: About 15 minutes before serving time, combine garlic,
rosemary, wine, clam juice and lobster base in a non-aluminum saucepan.
Bring to a gently simmer over medium heat, then simmer for 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and whisk in the butter. Keep warm.

3. Remove squid from marinade, draining well. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes,
turning as needed, until just firm. (An open grill or a well-heated, ridged
grill pan may be used. You may need to use a grill basket to hold the squid
pieces if the spaces on your grill are too wide to hold them.)

4. Shake saucepan to recombine sauce if necessary, then add cooked squid.
Raise heat to high and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat all pieces well.

5. Serve with an extra dab of sauce.
