Easy peasy calamari

Apr 6, 2013   //   by . Recipe section Recipes  //  No Comments

A big favourite at our house, and the squid should be delicious and tender not chewy or anything as it will be nice and fresh. Really quick to make and if you get squid and freeze it, it can be a quick rustle up store cupboard treat too.
I have put this in as a starter, but it can easily be a main dish too, we often make enough that it is our main meal.

A big favourite at our house, and the squid should be delicious and tender not chewy or anything as it will be nice and fresh. Really quick to make and if you get squid and freeze it, it can be a quick rustle up store cupboard treat too. I have put this in as a starter, but it can easily be a main dish too, we often make enough that it is our main meal.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a wok, and slice the squid into rings, and bite size pieces for the tentacles etc.
  2. Put the flours, salt and smoked paprika into a freezer bag add the squid (in batches) shake it well to coat and then add it to the hot oil in the wok - in batches, cooking until crispy and golden. It should just take a few minutes. You can rest the cooked squid on some kitchen roll to soak away any excess oil.
  3. For the garlic mayo, just crush the garlic, add to the mayonnaise and add salt and pepper to taste, and stir well. Serve while the squid is nice and hot, adding a squeeze of lemon juice too!
