Salt and Pepper Calamari

Posted By Helen Jackson On September 4, 2012 @ 1:01 pm In Recipes,Sea Food Recipes | 2 Comments

Yield: 4

Ingredients

  • 500g calamari tubes
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder

Method

Open up the calamari tubes to a flat piece and lightly score the inside with a sharp knife (if you score the outside they won't curl as well).  Cut into bite sized pieces.
Mix the salt, flour, pepper and chilli in a shallow dish.
Heat enough oil to come to a depth of 1-2cm in a large frying pan.  When it is hot enough that a small piece of bread sizzles and colours in about 30 seconds, dip the calamari into the flour and then quickly fry for 1-2 minutes until curled and golden.  Drain on paper towels
Serve with lime wedges on a salad of mesclun leaves, basil, coriander and mung sprouts and dress with a lemon vinaigrette..
