Using a sharp knife, make parallel diagonal cuts into the underside of the squid, cutting evenly halfway into the flesh. Once complete, turn the squid 180 degrees and cut in the opposite direction to give a criss-cross pattern.
Gently warm the rocket sauce in a saucepan. Put a frying pan over high heat and add the olive oil. Place the squid, scored side down, in the pan and sear for about 1 minute until the squid starts to curl up. Squid should be cooked rare to retain its wonderful juices and flavours. Place some of the rocket sauce in a bowl, then place the seared squid on top and serve immediately.
