#HotSummerEats: Sweet Garlic Squid #sponsor

Here we are at day two of my Hot Summer Eats event. As promised, I will be sharing a grilled recipe, a non-lettuce salad, and/or a cocktail. So, for the grilled offering today, here's my recipe for marinated squid...with a little help from one of our event sponsors: T.Lish. T.Lish's Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette was the perfect match for some fresh, pan-grilled squid. This is so simple and so tasty.


Clean the squid by removing the beak, the pen, and the innards. I do it in a bowl of cool water, but clean it wherever you wish.

Drain the water when you're finished. Pour enough vinaigrette into to the bowl to cover the squid. Agitate with your hands or a spoon. Let stand for at least 10 minutes. Cook in a grill-pan or over coals.

The squid is done when it is just opaque; don't cook it too long or it will get rubbery. Place the cooked squid in a shallow bowl and pour enough vinaigrette over the top to cover the squid. Let stand for at least 10 or 15 minutes.

Serve at room temperature.

Thanks, T.Lish* - just one of our #HotSummerEats sponsors - for ingredients used in this recipe. You can find T.Lish: on the web, on facebook, on twitter, on instagram, and on pinterest.

*Full Disclosure: I received a bottle of Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette from T.Lish for participating in #HotSummerEats. Feel free to use whatever garlic dressing you have on-hand. I received no additional compensation for this post; all comments are 100% accurate and 100% my own.


  1. I can't tell you how much I love the T-Lish products or at least the two I have tried thus far. I haven't gotten to the Chipotle dressing yet.

  2. You are so adventurous, Camilla! Great use of the dressing!

  3. I just love this T.Lish flavor - perfect for seafood, too.
