    Peel the carrots and discard the outer layer. Continue to peel the carrots into long thin ribbons, turning the carrot as necessary to maintain the width and thickness of each ribbon

    Place the rocket into a salad bowl and add the carrot and fennel

    Heat a frying pan and cook the chorizo sausage. It will release oils so it is not necessary to pre-oil the pan. Remove the chorizo sausage from the pan, keeping the oil in the pan

    Turn up the heat and bring the pan to a smoking temperature. Add the squid and quickly cook, searing all sides. The squid is cooked when it turns a white opaque colour. Remove from the pan
