Easy and tasty fried squid. You could save time by buying pre-prepared squid or calamari. You can use tofu instead of squid in this recipe.

Herbie's Spices New South Wales, Australia

Serves: 2 

  • 250g fresh baby squid, cleaned
  • 3 teaspoons Herbie's Spices Salt and Pepper Squid
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • vegetable oil for deep frying

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Cut the tentacles from the hoods of the squids, opening out the hoods and scoring in a diamond pattern on the inside.
  2. Cut the tentacles into groups of 4 and pat dry all the pieces, including hoods, dry between sheets of paper towel.
  3. Mix the spice mix with the cornflour in a shallow bowl.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep pan until very hot. To test the oil, press the end of a wooden spoon onto the base of the pan - if the oil sizzles, it's hot enough.
  5. Coat each piece of squid well with the flour mixture, then shake gently to remove excess.
  6. Deep fry until crisp and golden-brown - about 60-80 seconds.
  7. Drain on kitchen towel then serve while hot and crisp.
