    RECIPE: Fried Calamari







    Credit: KDArtStudio ©2017



    INGREDIENTS:


    • 1 Lb Frozen Calamari
    • 1/2 Cup All purpose Plain Flour
    • 1 Tbsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning
    • Cooking Oil


    You will also need:


    • 1 large gallon size Ziploc Bag
    • Large Saucepan / Pasta Pot or a Deep Fryer
    • Metal Slotted Spoon or Tongs
    • Baking Tray - lined with paper towels or a wire cake rack


    DIRECTIONS:

    1. Preheat Oil to 375F
    2. Defrost calamari in Fridge
    3. Mix together in a large ziplock bag, flour & lemon pepper, shake until combined
    4. Place Calamari in Seasoned flour, seal bag and shake, turning over until
        all calamari is coated
    5. Cook in hot oil 2-3 min, turning with metal slotted spoon
    6. Drain on paper towels inside a baking dish

        Serve Hot




    Tips:

    • Make sure oil is pre-heated to 375F before you drop calamari into oil or it won't cook properly and you will lose the breading
    • You can also Defrost the calamari in the microwave 60-90 seconds on high
    • You can use fresh or frozen calamari, shrimp or baby octopus
    • For a low carb, healthier version, you can use wheat flour instead of all purpose
    • I use Smart Balance Omega3 Cooking Oil for deep frying
    • Do not overcook calamari or it will be rubbery
