This calamari recipe makes a great appetizer or serve as the main course together with rice, a salad, or other side dishes. They are crispy on the outside and warm and moist and slightly chewy on the inside.
Recipe ingredients:
1 pound clean calamari cut into 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick rings
1 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
Recipe directions:
Pour oil to depth of 3 inches into a
Dutch oven or heavy large saucepan; heat over medium heat to 365°F.
Mix the flour, paprika, salt, and
pepper in a large bowl.
Toss the calamari into the flour
mixture to coat. (Work in small batches)
Place coated calamari in to the oil
and fry until crispy and light golden about 1 1/2 minutes per batch.
Carefully transfer calamari out from
oil to a paper-towel lined plate.
Serve with lemon wedges or your favorite sauce.
