DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the tubes open and check that they are really clean.
  • Open them up from one side and lay them with the inside surface facing up. With a really sharp knife, make slanted cuts into the flesh of the squid at 5mm intervals - only shallow, don't cut through.
  • Reverse and do it from the opposite direction to make diamond shapes.
  • Then cut the tubes into wide strips and toss into the flours, salt and pepper. Shake off any excess - I find a sieve works best.
  • When ready to cook, heat the oil to just smoking and add half of the squid sections.
  • Cook until they are a pale golden brown. Drain on paper towelling. Repeat with the remaining squid.
  • For the sauce, combine the rest of the ingredients.
  • To serve, pile the squid into a shallow serving plate and pour over half of the dessing.
  • Serve the rest of the dressing separately.
