    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 9 ounces frozen squid (tubes and tentacles to give about 7 ounces unfrozen )
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 2 tablespoons semolina
    • 1 teaspoon crab boil seasoning (recommend Old Bay or salt and paprika )
    • 1 cup oil (or as needed, depending on the size of pan)


    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a smallish saucepan and while it's left to heat up cut the thawed squid into 1/2-inch rings.
    2. 2
      Put the cornstarch, semolina and seasoning into a plastic freezer bag. Add the squid rings and tentacles and then toss to coat.
    3. 3
      When the oil is hot enough, which is when it sizzles up fiercely when you drop in a small cube of bread, fry the squid in batches to get the most golden crunchiness.
    4. 4
      A couple of minutes per batch is all you should need.
    5. 5
      Mince the garlic into the mayonnaise to serve alongside the fried squid.

      I didn't make the garlic mayonnaise, but very much enjoyed the squid. The semolina added a bit of crunch and texture. I would add a bit more Old Bay next time or add some salt to the mixture.
