Calamari (Fried Squid)

Calamari (Fried Squid)


My youngest child is obsessed with calamari and while I don’t eat it as I’m vegan, I like to share what the whole family enjoy, here.

This is my Dad’s recipe.

Calamari (Fried Squid)


1 tbsp sea salt
4 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp cornflour
400g squid tubes, washed
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Lemon and lemon wedges
Black pepper
Cayenne pepper
Parsley stalks


Mix the plain flour and corn flour with the sea salt. Cut the squid tubes into rings with a sharp knife. Fill a large pan with vegetable oil. Dip the squid rings into the flour, shaking off excess flour and fry for 2-3 minutes until crispy and golden.
Squeeze lemon over the rings and sprinkle with cayenne and black pepper. Garnish with parsley stalks and lemon wedges.
