HOW TO MAKE IT
- Firstly, clean the squid. To do so, remove the skin under running water, turn the tubes inside out and clean them. Leave to drain in a sieve.
- Cut the tubes into thirds and quickly sear in olive oil in a large non-stick pan with the shallots. Then add the zucchini and pepper strips to the frying pan and fry for about 7 min. Add the caperberries, olives, tomatoes, chilli and herbs. Stir together well before adding the tomato juice. Heat through for a short time before seasoning with salt and pepper.
