I've been on a mission to duplicate the calamari at Ruths Chris Steakhouse without much success. Come to find out that they keep the squid alive in tanks until ordered on the menu... no wonder! I've done a lot of research, and came up with this recipe... they turned out awesome! Very tender. Ruths Chris serves the fried calimari in a sweet and spicy clear asian sauce, there are several brands in asian markets to choose from. Okay... Here is the best tip ever when frying calamari... after dredging the rings in flour, turn the rings inside out... this way they stay wide open for mor even frying!:) Came up with that one myself.
