Gently fry the onion and garlic until soft but not brown.

Meanwhile make sure the squid tubes are dry, (pat with paper towel if necessary).

Form little sausage shapes of stuffing and proceed to stuff the squid tubes. Secure the ends with toothpicks.

Brush the squid lightly with olive oil and barbeque, turning frequently, so they don’t burn.

Cooking time will vary, but they will probably take 5-7 minutes, make sure to cook on medium heat.
