There's nothing better on a hot summers day than an awesome Calamari salad with a little kick!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
7 - 10oz (200 - 300g) calamari, sliced into long pieces
2 teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)
2 cup organic baby kale, spinach or rocket
1 small red onion, chopped
10 kalamata olives
Handful of fresh mint, chopped
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Mix the kale, red onion, kalamata olives, mint, juice from ¼ of the lemon, 1 teaspoon of oil, season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl coat the calamari with juice from ½ of the lemon and the chilli flakes.
Heat a pan to medium-high, adding the calamari, sizzle for 1-2 minutes (until the edges begin to curl). Once cooked, transfer the calamari to the salad, top with an extra squeeze of lemon (optional). Serve immediately.
