DIRECTIONS

  • For the Calamari place the flour and Cajun spice mix in a large bowl and mix. Add the squid and turn until all the pieces are thoroughly coated. Shake off the excess mixture.
  • In a large, heavy pot or deep-fryer over medium heat, heat the oil to 375°F or until almost smoking.
  • Fry the squid for 2 to 3 minutes, or until a light golden brown.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Serve immediately with lemon or lime wedges and Lemon Aioli.
  • For the Lemon Aioli place the zest, juice, mustard, garlic, egg yolks, pepper, salt, and bread in a blender or food processor and puree to a smooth paste.
  • With the machine running, drizzle in the oil. If the aioli appears too thick, add 2 tablespoons of water at a time to adjust the consistency. Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
