DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and pat squid rings dry.
  • Pour flour into zip lock bag along with salt, pepper, cayenne, and garlic powder: shake to mix.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and hot sauce (I use Texas Pete).
  • Pour remaining flour in another zip lock bag.
  • Working with a few rings at a time, shake in unseasoned flour, dip into egg/milk mixture, shake off excess, then shake in seasoned flour.
  • Fry in hot oil (350 degrees) until a light golden brown. I recommend doing just a couple of rings at first as a taste test. Add seasoning to flour if required.
  • After frying, place on paper towel to drain, and re-season with Tony's (optional). Just a little salt is fine as well.
  • Note: I don't recommend using Tony's as the seasoning for the flour--it comes out too salty.
