“Fried squid”
1hr 20mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the squid, rinse them, and drain in a colander for 1 hour.
  2. Deep-fry them as long as the oil is not too hot (about 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C is the right temperature).
  3. Put the flour with salt in a plate, mix well and add half of the pieces of squid, but leave the tentacles for the end.
  4. Turn them in the flour, then lift a few pieces up at a time, shake excess flour off and drop them in the hot oil.
  5. When they turn a nice golden color lift them out with a slotted spoon.
  6. At the end sprinkle the lemon juice all over, some oregano, and serve immediately.
  7. These squid should always be fried just before they are to be eaten and should not be re-fried or re-heated!
