Squid Skewers


Squid can be hard to cook on the grill without falling through the grates, so that's why they are often threaded onto skewers, as in this recipe, where the squid is paired with its favorite companion, chorizo, as well as sliced onion and red and green bell pepper. Season with lemon juice, brush with olive oil (to prevent from sticking), and cook on a heated grill, turning to cook evenly.
