Grilled Squid with a Tomato & Onion salsa

This salad is beautifully fresh and with the kick of chili & lemon it is a perfect start to any meal or even to have for a light lunch. Squid is remarkably good value if you are willing to clean it yourself. Cleaning is not for the squeamish so ask your fish monger to clean it for you if you do not want to do the dirty work.

Squid takes only 1 minute per side on a hot griddle pan so make your Tomato & Onion Salsa first.

2 avocados
Handful Fresh Coriander
1 red chilli
1 lemon
Extra virgin olive oil

1 sharp knife
Large mixing bowl
