For The Marinade
For The Paprika Mayonnaise
Rinse the calamari tubes under cold running water and pat dry. Place tubes on a board. Using a sharp knife, cut down the ‘seam’, enabling the calamari tube to lie flat on the board. Repeat with the remaining tubes.
Score the inside of each calamari tube first in one direction, then the other, creating a criss-cross pattern. Cut the scored calamari into 4cm square pieces.
Combine ingredients for the marinade and pour over the scored calamari squares. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.
Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot. Cook calamari in batches for 2 to 3 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Combine ingredients to make the paprika mayonnaise. Toss together Cannellini beans, peppers, red onion and parsley. Season well.
To Serve Top bean mixture with calamari tubes and rocket. Serve with a dollop of paprika mayonnaise on the side.
