Crispy Squid With Capers

Crispy Squid With Capers created by Luschka

Very easy addition to a tapas evening, or just on its own as a snack. The crispy capers themselves are quite lovely! Serve with garlic mayo and lemon wedges. To clean the squid, firstly remove the solid clear shaft running from the head to the end of the body. Pull the head away from the body slowly but firmly to remove the innards. Wash the body under running water - if there's any dark skin, this can usually be rubbed off, but dont worry to much if it sticks. Cut the head just below the eyes, retaining the tentacles, which can be used in the dish, but discard the rest of the head and innards.
