DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the squid, rinse them, and drain in a colander for 1 hour.
  • Deep-fry them as long as the oil is not too hot (about 350 degrees F/ 180 degrees C is the right temperature).
  • Put the flour with salt in a plate, mix well and add half of the pieces of squid, but leave the tentacles for the end.
  • Turn them in the flour, then lift a few pieces up at a time, shake excess flour off and drop them in the hot oil.
  • When they turn a nice golden color lift them out with a slotted spoon.
  • At the end sprinkle the lemon juice all over, some oregano, and serve immediately.
  • These squid should always be fried just before they are to be eaten and should not be re-fried or re-heated!
