Got squid.

Got barbecue.

Kebab type things?

Will that work?

I don't see why not except that squid cooks so quickly you'd really only want to show it the barbeque, IYSWIM. Overcooked squid is like chewing a rubber. You could stick some big prawns or chunks of cod on the sticks as well maybe - brush with a bit of oil and Bob's Your Uncle (or not).

Thanks. So, 5 minutes? Or might that be too long? Wonder how you tell how it's cooked.

Just a bit of parsley and lemon with it perhaps??? anything else?

God yes.Not kebabs though.
Cut criss cross pattern into it, not quite all the way through. Marinate in lemon, garlic and olive oil. Throw an barbie when really hot (ie. coals glowing/white but no flame) for 60 secs or so. Fab.

How was your swim btw?

Didn't go swimming sadly. Just whined on other thread about that. blush

Criss cross marinadey idea sounds good. Am off to do that now.

DH and DS didn't like it, but I did!

Excellent!
Next time, bbq mussels too. They are divine.

Nah. Crustaceons (sp?) are fine. I don't eat molluscs. They're just slugs in shells. grin
