Make sure the squid are well cleaned and rinsed, inside and out.
If there are tentacles on the squid, remove them from the bodies and keep.
Lay the bodies in a single layer in a shallow tray or dish.
Place the tentacles and the slices of feta cheese around the squid, making sure everything is in a single layer.
Make the marinade by putting the oil, garlic and oregano in a bowl and whisk together.
Season with salt and black pepper.
Remove one squid at a time and place 1 or 2 pieces of feta cheese and some of the oregano leaves inside the squid.
Preheat and oil a barbecue or grill on a low to medium setting and place the feta filled squid bodies onto the grill.
Grill the stuffed squid gently for about 6-8 minutes.
