What crustacean brings together an evening with friends spent under the gazebo, chatting and laughing loudly? Squid of course!
In this recipe, they are lightly breaded for grilling in a pan with vegetables from sun and even an apple! And to finally tune everything we finish it with some chorizo to give it that little “je-ne-sais-quoi “! In the end, you don’t even need a gazebo or clear skies, just that good supper, that delicious wine and some amazing friends will suffice!
Enjoy your meal!
