for hot lazy days when i can barely be bothered to cook and want something light, i often used to turn to prawns. but having seen a documentary about the negative environmental impact their farming can have, as well as another less than appealing aspect about how they are encouraged to breed, i’ve stopped buying them. however, i have remembered that squid is a good alternative in many quick and easy dishes.
this thomasina miers recipe was part of a “top ten 10 minute dishes" and it has wonderful flavours that bely its simplicity. use good tomatoes and enjoy the salsa that is flavoured with garlic, herbs, anchovies and capers and which brings all the components together to create a lovey light summer supper.
