1.  To make the marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.

2.  Place the cleaned calamari in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag several times to distribute the marinade, place the bag in a bowl, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

3.  Put the arugula in large serving bowl.

4.  Drain the calamari in a sieve and discard the marinade. Grill over Direct High heat until well marked and tender, 3 to 4 minutes, turning once. Immediately add the calamari to the bowl of arugula and mix well so the heat of the calamari wilts the arugula.

5.  Butter the bread slices on both sides and grill over Direct High heat until lightly toasted, about 20 seconds per side. Serve the salad warm or at room temperature with the toasted bread slices.
