Total Time
25 mins


1 lb
whole calamari (about 4), cleaned and longer tentacles trimmed
500 g
1 tbsp
finely grated fresh ginger
15 mL
1 tbsp
soy sauce
15 mL
1 tsp
sesame oil
5 mL
metal or soaked wooden skewers (8 in./20 cm)
1 tbsp
sesame seeds
15 mL


Step 1

Without slicing all the way through, cut cross-wise into the body (tubular section) of the calamari every 1/2-in. (1-cm) into a series of "rings" left intact along one side.

Step 2

In large bowl, combine the ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Add calamari, turn to coat with mixture and marinate 10 min.

Step 3

Thread skewers in and out through the calamari "rings". Place on grill preheated to high. Close lid and cook -- but lifting lid to turn often -- until calamari is firm, white and no longer translucent, about 4 min. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
