1. Five Spice Squid with Sesame Cucumbers

Never cooked squid at home before? No problem, you’ll be cool as a cucumber when you make this easy Asian-style version. Lightly score the squid so it cooks quickly and remains tender, then dust it in our special five-spice mix and plenty of salt and pepper. Flash-fry it until it’s curled and golden, scatter with chilli and garlic, then serve it up with a crisp cucumber sesame salad to balance the heat.

2. Barbecued Squid with Pineapple Salsa

Whether you’re cooking on the barbecue or at the stove, this dish has summer nights covered. Tender squid takes just 5 minutes to chargrill, then serve it with a sweet and spicy pineapple salsa and some smoky grilled bread.

3. Squid and Sweetcorn Hummus with Avocado Salsa

Swap chickpeas for corn in our delicious twist on hummus that blends golden kernels with garlic, yoghurt and a little tahini. It’s the perfect creamy base for quick-fried squid and a bright avocado salsa.

4. Squid Stir-Fry with Black Bean Sauce

Swap the classic sliced beef with squid and your black bean stir-fry just got a lot more sophisticated! Ready in under 25 minutes, this speedy dinner will give you more time to put your feet up.

5. Chilli Squid and Noodle Stir-fry with Kale

A classic Chinese stir-fry gets a superfood boost with the addition of nutritious and delicious kale. All you need to do is whip up a zingy sauce of lime juice, sweet chilli and soy, cook up the squid, kale and noodles, and you have a spectacular and satisfying dinner for two.

6. Goan Squid with Yellow Rice

Tantalise your tastebuds with this gorgeous Goan squid dinner. An exotic blend of spices with the addition of aromatics, such as garlic, ginger and onion, all cooked in a creamy coconut sauce makes the perfect base for the tender flash-fried squid. Simply teamed with turmeric-scented rice, this dish delivers an authentic Goan experience.

7. Salt and Pepper Squid with Burghul Tabouleh

We've kept the fundamentals of a classic tabouleh here - the burghul, parsley, mint and lemon dressing - and then added crunch and substance to make it a satisfying meal. We've upped the protein by adding flash-fried squid and also added pepitas and radish which create wonderful texture.
