Today, we want to show you how to prepare grilled Cajun calamari, a mouthwatering recipe inspired by the traditional Cajun cuisine.
We love Louisiana cuisine, as it's rich in vegetables, seafood, and spices. We marinated fresh squid in a spicy seasoning prepared with paprika, thyme, cayenne, and lime. Then, we quickly grilled it to lock in the flavour.
In classic Cajun-meal style, we served the calamari with a generous side of sautéed peppers, tomatoes and brown rice. This way, you'll have a nutritious and balanced meal that packs proteins and fibres, all under 500 calories. It's perfect for dinner or packed for your next-day lunch-box.
Here are some quick nutritional facts. A serving provides over half of your recommended daily intake of proteins. Along with fibres, proteins make you feel full for longer helping you eat less thought the day and thus consume fewer calories.
Calamari are incredibly nutritious as they provide proteins and B vitamins, in particular vitamin B12 and B6, but also minerals like copper and selenium.
Red and green peppers and tomatoes add a source of fibres and precious antioxidants to this dish for an all-health boost.
Sounds good? Then let us show you how to make it, in under an hour!
