Delicious Deep-fried Calamari


1 lb. of squid

1/3 cup fine corn flour

1/2 tsp. corn starch

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp pepper

vegetable oil for frying (I use sunflower oil)

lemon wedges for garnish

  1. Thaw, clean & rinse your calamari. Pat dry with paper towels.

  2. In a bowl, add your flour, corn flour, corn starch, salt, pepper and mix well. Have a quick taste of the flour mixture to assure yourself of proper seasoning.

  3. Toss your calamari in the flour mixture and Let stand while you pre-heat your oil for frying, then shake off excess flour (you should fry your calamari in about three inches of oil).

  4. As soon as your oil hits a temperature between 365-375F, you’re ready.

  5. Fry your calamari for 3-4 minutes per batch (1 lb. of calamari usually takes two batches). Season with sea salt.

  6. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
