Add to the pan the squid rings, and cook together for further 5-6 minutes.
When the water is evaportated – test for doneness.
When soft but still able to retain their shape, turn up the heat and roast the squid and the swede wedges slightly. Add some wine to finish.
Set to a side to cool down.

Squeeze a lemon into a bowl and add also the inner pulp.
Add together into a bowl the finely cut celery sticks, capers, roughly chopped anchovys, fresh parsley and mint, three tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper.
