DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a smallish saucepan and while it's left to heat up cut the thawed squid into 1/2-inch rings.
  • Put the cornstarch, semolina and seasoning into a plastic freezer bag. Add the squid rings and tentacles and then toss to coat.
  • 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.
  • A couple of minutes per batch is all you should need.
  • Mince the garlic into the mayonnaise to serve alongside the fried squid.
