    Hmmm, actually I have - what a surprise!

    Deep-fried Squid with salt and pepper mix​


    I haven't made Salt and Pepper Squid for a long time but this recipe used to be my favourite and made it up myself. This is how I used to make it.

    I would start with the tube. Cut into inch wide strips and diamond score each piece using a sharp knife. Put in the fridge while preparing the rest.
    You will need (all approximate, depending on how peppery and salty you like it):

    2 tbsp of sea salt
    1 tbsp of red peppercorns
    1 tbsp of black peppercorns
    half tsp dried chilli flakes
    1 tbsp corn flour

    Method

    Mix salt and peppercorns in a frypan (medium heat) and toast for about 4 minutes until crisp then add the chilli flakes.

    Once cooled, crush to a coarse powder.

    Now place half the mixture into a large bowl and add the corn flour. Toss the squid in the pepper mix to lightly coat.

    Fry in hot Olive Oil in batches for approx 2 minutes and drain on a paper towel.

    Place on a platter, sprinkle the other half of the pepper mixture over the cooked squid and serve with lemon slices. Serve warm, not hot.
    Enjoy with a glass of a fruity, crispy, chilled white wine - Riesling.
    It's nice served cold too with a green salad and potato salad :D

    If you are going to serve it with a green salad, pour some mango juice on the lettuce to enhance the flavour and quite refreshing.
