  1. Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Simmer. And stir until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
  2. In a food processor puree the jalapeno chile, garlic clove, cilantro, and ginger.
  3. As the food processor is running pour in the simple syrup, fish sauce, soy sauce, and lime juice. Remove.
  4. Remove the tentacles from the squid and cut the tubes open. Score a diamond pattern on the inside of tubes. Then cut into 2 inch pieces.
  5. Toss the squid with olive oil and some of the salad dressing to marinate for 5 minutes.
  6. If you are using a gas grill set the temperature to medium. If you are using a charcoal barbeque get the coals to the point that white ash is showing and the coals are glowing and are spread out in an even layer.
  7. Grill the squid for 1 minute.
  8. In a salad bowl combine the tomato, red onion, baby lettuce, red chili pepper with the salad dressing. Toss.
  9. Divide the salad onto individual salad plates and top with the grilled squid. Serve immediately.
