  • 1 lb Squid (medium to large size) cleaned and sliced into rings
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Calamansi juice

Instructions

Preparing the squid

  • Slice squid in half just below the eyes, separating the tentacles from the head; reserve tentacles.
  • Holding the body, gently pull out the head, intestines, ink sac, and clear skeleton; discard innards.
  • Working from the cut end of the body, grasp the thin skin. Peel back toward the tip and discard.
  • Rinse squid body and tentacles before cooking. Slice body crosswise into rings.

Marinating, coating and frying the squid

  • In a bowl, combine squid, salt, pepper and calamansi extract. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Dredge the squid in flour then dip in beaten egg and roll over breadcrumbs.
  • Once the oil is hot, deep fry the squid until the coat turns brown.
    Note: Do not overcook the squid.
  • Then, remove the squid from the pan and place on a plate over paper tissue.
  • Serve with your favorite dip. Eat and enjoy!

I’ve got an expensive palate that it welcomes only this expensive type of meat, which is Beef. In our country, Philippines, Beef is considered a type of meat that is cooked on special occasions. My case is different as I have it almost every day. Thus, I decided to learn beef recipes, and I’m more than willing to share them with you!
