This recipe follows the paleolithic diet once again except for the crumb on the calamari which could be exchanged for grilled baby calamari. This recipe is dairy free.

400g crumbed calamari strips
100 ml mayonnaise
5 capers, chopped
5ml chopped onion
1 jalapeno chilli, chopped
2 sprigs parsley chopped
lemon juice
salt and pepper

Method:
Spray and cook a tray and grill the calamari with no oil for 6 minutes 1 side, flip it over and grill the second side for a further 6 - 8 minutes until golden. Squeeze over some fresh lemon juice.
Mix the mayonnaise with all the chopped ingredients and season with lemon, salt and pepper.
Serve the mayonnaise with any grilled fish.

4 leaves iceberg, washed and torn or chopped
2 baby cucumbers, sliced
1 baby carrot sliced

dressing of your choice
Salt and pepper
