Difficulty: Easy

Total Time: 1 hr 20 mins, plus marinating time

Makes: 6 servings as an hors d'oeuvre

Light and full of flavor, ceviche is a great use for calamari and couldn’t be simpler to toss together. Grapefruit and lime juice work here as the citrusy base, and mango adds a tropical twist. Since the calamari is poached first, this nontraditional ceviche is ideal for those who shy away from raw seafood.

What to buy: If you purchase whole, uncleaned calamari, 1 1/2 pounds yields about 12 ounces of cleaned squid. Check out this CHOW video on how to clean squid for tips.

Instructions

  1. 1Prepare an ice water bath by filling a large bowl halfway with ice and water; set aside.
  2. 2Bring the measured water to a boil over high heat in a medium saucepan. Add the calamari, stir, and cook until just opaque, about 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon to the ice water bath and let cool, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the calamari from the ice water bath and spread out on a clean kitchen towel or paper towels to dry.
  3. 3Place the grapefruit juice, lime zest, lime juice, onion, shallot, garlic, serrano, and curry powder in a large, nonreactive bowl and stir to combine. Add the dry calamari, mango, and radishes, season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 6 hours. Taste and season with additional salt, pepper, and lime juice as needed.
  4. 4Peel the avocados, cut them in half, and remove the pits. To serve, mound about a quarter of the ceviche onto each avocado half.
