Fresh calamari is dipped in a homemade buttermilk batter then fried to a golden brown. I like to serve as an entree with a dipping sauce.


Serves: 6 

  • 2 cups (500ml) vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup (250g) buttermilk
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 500g squid, cleaned and cut into 1cm rings

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan or deep-fryer to 180 degrees C.
  2. Pour buttermilk into a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, salt, pepper and oregano.
  4. Dip squid rings into the buttermilk then into the seasoned flour.
  5. Place the coated pieces in the hot oil and fry in small batches turning if necessary for even cooking. When evenly browned remove to paper towels to drain and continue with the rest of the squid. Serve hot.
