  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Slit the calamari tubes up 1 side and lightly score 1 side. Place the tubes and tentacles in a bowl and add the lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
