This dish is perfect for the two of you, eaten straight from the pan (great dish to save on the washing-up!)

Note on preparing the squid. Grab the head and tentacles and pull them from the outer casing. As you do this feel along the ridge of the squid to dislodge the backbone. Throw the backbone and gunk out and you are effectively left with the head, tentacles and sock. Rinse the squid under cold water and roughly chop up. In a heavy based frying pan add a few good glugs of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add a sliced clove of garlic and a sprinkle of chilli flakes (more if you want it quite spicy). When the garlic starts to brown and the flakes crisp up, add your newly podded broad beans. There is no need to steam the beans first as they become deliciously crispy. Add a few slices of chorizo. The paprika and spices in the chorizo creates a lovely golden colour. The squid will make the dish juicy and everything will stew for a few moments and then start to dry out and refry. Add a few pinches of parsley. A pinch of salt & pepper, squeeze of lemon and served with hunks of crusty white baguette. (day old baguette works really well to soak up the juices - in some ways the best part of the dish)

Hi Liz. I used this recipe as a starter for a dinner party & it wowed everyone! The instructions for preparing the squid were great (never prepared it myself before). The only changes I made were I served it on homemade garlic baguette. Thanks for sharing this 5* recipe with us! Michelle
