Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 400 grams fresh rocket leaves
  • 1 cup red capsicum strips
  • Shaved slices of green cucumber
  • 4 red cherry tomatoes
  • Rings of red Spanish onion
  • 2 tablespoons garlic and chilli oil
  • Sea salt to taste and ground black pepper
  • 125 ml lemon juice with zest
  • 1 bulb fresh garlic
  • 8 fresh calamari / squid tubes, cleaned and cut in 3 cm pieces
  • 1 medium red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley and dash of sweet paprika
  • Emelia’s Magic Salad Dressing
  • Emelia’s Garlic Aioli


  1. To marinate the squid, combine all ingredients except rocket in a bowl. Let it marinate for up to 3 hours.
  2. Preheat a heavy-based grill pan until hot. Drizzle a little garlic and chilli oil, then cook the squid in small batches until just turned in colour, about 2 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all salad ingredients (except for rocket) with a little garlic and chilli oil, and Emelia’s Magic Salad Dressing.
  4. Arrange rocket on 4 white dinner plates, top with the mixed salad, then the hot squid pieces. Drizzle with garlic aioli and decorate with thin slices of freshly sliced chilli.
  5. Serve immediately. The flavour of Magic Salad Dressing combined with the aioli is superb.
