Grilled Calamari and Octopus Salad with Strawberries – Recipe

Grilled Calamari and Octopus Salad with Strawberries - Recipe

This is a recipe I invented for my birthday. Usually, for my birthday cooking, I use strawberries because they are in season and they taste great when bought from the farmers market, but normally I would do a chicken salad with strawberries.
But because earlier this year I had a cooking night with a friend who prepared a raw calamari salad, I was inspired by his achievement and replaced chicken with calamari.
This was only the first course, the second one will follow soon, it’s chicken. 😉

Ingredients (6 servings):

  • 1 kg calamari stripsGrilled Calamari and Octopus Salad with Strawberries - Recipe
  • 500 g (smaller) octopus tentacles
  • 1 kg fresh strawberries
  • 5-6 spring onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a tablespoon (to taste) balsamic vinegar
  • Hungarian barbeque style seasoning mix – optional

Preparation method:

  1. Salt and pepper the calamari and octopus. I also added some spice mixture of Hungarian inspiration called Spicy Puszta.Grilled Calamari and Octopus Salad with Strawberries - Recipe
