Serve this with a Thai sweet/hot chili sauce. Had it like that in Bangkok and it was one of the best meals I had there.
This recipe sounds too easy to be true. It isn't. As with any grilled seafood, the fresher the ingredients and the simpler the cooking, the better the end result. Barbecued squid and an anise flavored aperitif like Pernod, ricard, ouzo or raki, make a wonderful combination. Make a fire, preferably with firewood or Mexican charcoal, started from paper and kindling. Skewer the squid. When coals are red hot, barbecue the rings for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until they are brown.
NOTE: Commercial charcoal and lighter fluid are petroleum products.
Mexican charcoal is available in Northern California through Lazzari Fuel Company, San Francisco.
