Spicy Squid With Long Leaf Cilantro With Florida Grapefruit


  • 8 ounces cleaned squid, including tentacles
  • Water
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 2 Bird’s Eye chilies, seeded and sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup long-leaf cilantro
  • 1/4 cup white grapefruit segments
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced


1. Make a dressing by mashing the chilies and garlic into a paste. Add the lime juice and fish sauce. Set aside.

2. Place water and salt in a pot and bring up to a boil. Cut squid into 1-inch pieces and add to the water until just cooked. Do not bring back up to a boil. Add the squid to the remaining ingredients and the dressing. Toss gently and eat.
