  • 1 1/2 pounds cleaned squid tentacles and bodies
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 teaspoon old bay seasoning or try Skinny Ms. Seafood Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon parsley fresh, chopped


  • Cut the squid bodies along the sides so they lay flat.
  • In a bowl combine the olive oil, juice of one of the lemons and the rest of the ingredients, except the parsley.
  • Add the squid, toss to coat and refrigerate for 2 hours, tossing every 30 minutes or so, to make sure the marinade gets evenly distributed.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Place a piece of foil on the grill and brush it with a light coating of vegetable oil to keep the squid from slipping through the grill grates and sticking to the foil.
  • Grill the squid, about 3 – 4 minutes per side, until it turns opaque. Remove from the grill, garnish with the fresh parsley and the remaining lemon, cut into wedges.
