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



    3 oz = 1 Serving Size
