Ingredients for Squid and Onion with Green Pepper

4 medium squid (the body only)
2 medium onions
1 green pepper

Handful fresh parsley

How to make Squid and Onion with Green Pepper

  • Clean the squid by pulling the head away from the body and then removing the innards and the clear bone or quill from inside.
  • Remove any dark skin covering the squid and then open the squid lengthways with scissors. Wash and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Place the squid fillets into a shallow dish and drizzle with a little olive oil and the juice of 1 lemon and set aside for a few minutes.
  • Peel and slice the onions and slice the green pepper. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and gently cook the onion and the pepper until soft but don't allow them to brown too much.
  • Meanwhile cook the squid fillets in a separate pan until cooked through and tender. Slice into strips and season with salt.
  • Serve with the onion and pepper and garnish with a little chopped parsley.
