Fried squid is delicious and a surprisingly cheap treat. 4 very little squid per person is a good portion for dinner. This is super served with garlic bread or our home-made chips. The secret is not to over cook the squid. Dust it in flour and shallow fry it in vegetable oil for only 10 seconds.
For 2 people, you will need:
- 8 little squid cut in rings
- 2-3 tbsp flour seasoned with salt & pepper
- Vegetable oil
- 2 spring onions chopped
- 1 red chilli chopped finely
- Handful of herbs (mint, coriander, parsley work really well)
- Juice of 1 lime
Chop the spring onions, chilli and herbs and place in a bowl. Coat the squid in flour and heat a good glug of oil in a wok / deep pan. Once the oil is really hot (test with a piece of bread to see if it sizzles), add the squid a few pieces at a time and shallow fry it for only 10 seconds. Drain it on kitchen roll and add to the onion, herbs & chilli. Pour over the lime juice and stir.
