Spicy Grilled Calamari! | The Little Shop of Olive Oils

Spicy Grilled Calamari!


  • 1/2-pound calamari tubes only (I used frozen)
  • 1 teaspoon Little Italy Herb blend 
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Lemon Infused Olive Oil
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced (optional)
  • 1 Head of lettuce (optional)


  • Clean calamari tubes well and pat dry. 
  • In a shallow dish, lie whole calamari tubes in a single layer. Cover with fresh lemon juice. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 40 minutes.
  • Heat grill to high heat.
  • Remove calamari tubes from the refrigerator and drain lemon juice and brush with Oil.
  • Adjust grill to a medium temperature.
  • Place calamari tubes on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side do not overcook. Calamari should be white and firm.
  • Remove from grill to a cutting board. Cut calamari into rings and place into a medium mixing bowl. Toss with cracked pepper, herb blend and finely chopped parsley.
  • Serve immediately on a bed of lettuce.
