Grilled Squid Stuffed with Feta Cheese


  • 8 squid bodies, cleaned about 2 lbs
  • 8-12 finger length slices of feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 8 thyme sprigs, leaves removed and chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste

  • Clean the squid and remove the transparent quill, then remove the purple skin. Rinse the body sack inside and out.
  • Lay the squid in a shallow dish in one layer and place the strips of feta along side.
  • To make the marinade, pour the olive oil into a large bowl, along with the garlic thyme, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the marinade over the squid, cover and refrigerate for several hours, turning the squid occasionally.
  • Place a few strips of the marinated cheese inside of the squid bodies.
  • Preheat the grill or broiler and cook then for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Serve the squid with lemon wedges.
