Grilled Squid

I love squid.  If done right it is super tender and it has a subtle sweet flavor.  I tried grilling it and below is the recipe!

Ingredients:

1/4 lb. Squid (Cut and cleaned)
Lemon Zest
1/2 Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tsp. Fresh Oregano, Basil and Parsley
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
Salt and Pepper

Instructions:

1.  Clean the squid under running cold water.  Make sure to check for any beaks leftover from the grocery store.
2.  Marinade the squid in all above ingredients, reserving roughly a teaspoon of the lemon zest and herbs to finish the squid with after the grill.
3.  Let squid rest for 20-30 minutes.
4.  Grill squid over medium high heat. Grill the bodies first, then the tentacles.
5.  Grill the bodies for about 3-4 minutes on each side until no longer opaque.  The tentacles need about 4 minutes total.  I held mine with tongs until they tightened up, as not to fall through the grates.
6.  Remove from grill and finish with the saved lemon zest and herbs.
