Fried Calamari

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 pound squid (I use hoods and cut into thin rings or strips)
  • 4 cups vege oil

Have 2 bowls. In one bowl beat egg whites for 10 seconds. In second bow mix all other dry ingredients. Dip 1/2 squid in egg white, remove with a slotted spoon and toss in the flour mixture. Place in a layer on a wire rack over baking sheet. Repeat with remaining squid.

Heat oil in a wok to 400 degrees. Add 1/4 of the squid fry for exactly 90 seconds and transfer to paper towel. Repeat. Sprinkle with salt and serve with rocket and lemon. DELICIOUS!
