FRIED CALAMARI WITH AIOLI RECIPE

Homemade crispy calamari is quick, easy and definitely worth the effort.

INGREDIENTS

24 ritz crackers

¾ cup plain flour

1 ½ tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

½ kilo small squid, cleaned

Approximately 5 cups vegetable oil for deep frying

Lemon wedges: accompaniment

METHOD

Pulse crackers in a food processor with flour, salt and sugar until finely ground, transfer to a bowl. Cut flaps from squid sacs if attached. Cut sacs into ¼ inch thick rings.

Using paper towel, pat dry the squid and season with salt and pepper. Toss squid in flour mixture to coat, shaking off excess. Fry squid in small batches, turning regularly until golden and crisp, about 1 minute for each. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve the squid (calamari) with aioli and lemon wedges.
