Grilled Squid


Grilled Squid Grilled meats and seafood are very popular in Vietnam and many recipes, like this one, rely upon the specific flavors imparted from the open wood burning grill.


1 pound cleaned squid
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup cilantro leaves

Pinch of pepper
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon finely chopped lemongrass
1 tablespoon thick soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar


Rub the squid with salt and rinse. Slit and flatten the squid sac and make diagonal cuts on the inside surface. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Combine marinade ingredients, then marinate squid for 1 hour.

Grill squid over a charcoal grill, until just tender (about 2 minutes each side). Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with cilantro. Serve with Fish Sauce Dip.

Helpful hint: This is a versatile marinade, suitable for other types of fish or poultry.
