Ingredients to Serve- 4

Jerk Calamari, Mango and Watercress Salad
  • 2 Cups Calamari rings
    1 Recipe Fresh Jerk marinate
    4 Tablespoons Olive oil
    1 Tablespoon Dark rum
    1 Cup Julienne mango
    1 Cup Julienne jicama
    1 Cup Julienne sweet red peppers
    2 Cups Cleaned Watercress leaves
    3 Tablespoons Freshly squeezed lemon juice
    2 Tablespoons Yogurt
    ¼ Teaspoon Crushed red pepper flakes
    10 Large Fresh mint leaves

To prepare the Calamari: In a small stainless steel bowl mix the calamari with jerk marinate. Warm a sauté pan with half of the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the calamari and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Slowly add the rum and simmer for another minute. Remove the calamari from the pan, keeping warm and reserve the cooking juices.

To prepare the Salad: In a large bowl, toss together the mango, jicama, peppers and watercress. In another small bowl, whisk together the pan juices with the remaining salt, olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt and crushed red pepper flakes. Pour this dressing over the salad and toss.

To Serve: In a large white oval platter, arrange the salad and spoon the warm jerked calamari on top. Garnish with freshly torn mint leaves.
