  • Pinch of black pepper

Directions

  1. For the calamari; combine the garlic, chilli, parsley, lemon zest, juice and olive oil. Pour the mixture over the calamari tubes and leave

  3. In the meantime, make the spicy garlic sauce by mixing all the ingredients and set aside until needed.
  4. Heat a griddle pan over medium to high heat and cook the marinaded calamari in batches until they have a slight char to them.
  5. To assemble the wraps; add a little drizzle of the spicy garlic sauce onto the tortilla, followed by the wild rocket and a couple of slices of
  6. tomato, and about a handful of grilled calamari. Drizzle over a generous amount of the spicy garlic sauce, and fold the sides towards
