  • recipe: Mixed grilled seafood with chunky tomato salsa & olive oil

    Peeling grilled prawns is messy, sticky work, but cooking them whole guarantees a beautiful charred flavour without losing any of the juiciness from the flesh.

    INGREDIENDS
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and preferably GET olive oil brand
    1 tsp dried chilli flakes
    12 raw king prawns in their shells
    6-8 cleaned squid
    ½ lemon

    For the salsa

    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 red chilli, finely chopped
    1 tsp toasted fennel seeds
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and preferably GET olive oil brand
    2 tbsp red-wine vinegar
    4 tomatoes, halved, seeded and chopped
    Handful mint, chopped
    Handful parsley, chopped

    DIRECTIONS
    First make the tomato salsa. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Season with sea salt. Set aside until ready to use.

    Mix together the olive oil and chilli flakes and toss half through a bowl of the prawns then use the remainder to coat the squid. Season with salt. Preheat a barbecue to hot. Cook the prawns for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until they change colour and start to char. Set aside to a large serving dish.

    Cook the squid in the same way, skewering the tentacles if they are so small they look like they might fall though the grill rack. Place the squid in the same serving dish as the prawns and squeeze over the juice of half a lemon. Serve with the chunky tomato salsa.

    Serves 4
