In this easy recipe, squid (calamari) is simply flavored with olive oil and lemon juice, then quickly grilled to tender perfection. Squid must be cooked fast over high heat or slow-cooked to achieve tenderness. Anything in between results in a chewy mess.
Gather the ingredients.
Heat grill to high heat.
Rinse squid under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels.
Cut squid bodies lengthwise down one side and open flat.
Cut tentacles in half if large.
In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Add squid bodies and tentacles, tossing to coat.
Thread squid bodies lengthwise onto skewers so they lie flat.
Thread tentacles onto separate skewers.
Grill over high heat, turning once, until just opaque throughout, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove squid from skewers and pile on a platter. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
Serve and enjoy!
