 Brush an iron pan with olive oil and heat till the oil almost smokes.

Add 2 sage leaves, 300 grams of calamari and stir.

When the calamari begins to change its color to white, add half of the amount of the garlic, curry, chili and soy. Stir for 30 seconds.

Add half of the green onions and mango remove from flame.

Continue with the second half in the exact same way.

Combine both and pour into a bowl, add the lemon juice and mix.

Pour the yoghurt sauce to the center of each plate, add the calamari and a drizzle of olive oil.

We get great results using an outdoors grill for the Calamari.
