Tempura Fried Calamari
Recipe type: appetizer
  • 2 pounds squid rings,
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup ice-cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  1. Heat the oil in the deep fryer to 375 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine egg (beaten) and water (without the ice).
  3. Add flour and loosely mix. Note: Batter will be lumpy.
  4. Emerge the squid rings in the batter to coat.
  5. Shake to remove excess batter (putting the squid rings in a sieve or strainer makes this go easier).
  6. Drop the squid rings in the hot oil and fry for no longer than 2 minutes (overcooking turns delicate rings into chewy rubber).
  7. Remove from the fryer and drain.
  8. Serve with a chili sauce.
