Three Ingredients to Semolina Calamari
The easiest squid calamari recipe! Always use fresh calamari if you can and cut into rings at home, it’s fresher and not so tough.
Serves three – four
2 medium sized calamari hoods
¼ cup semolina flour
¼ cup regular flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small red chilli (optional)
Olive oil for cooking
Start by washing calamari and then lightly dry to remove too much excess moisture. Keep it at room temperature too before cooking. With the calamari flat, cut to make thin rings. Combine semolina and regular flour and lightly toss the calamari. In a shallow pan, heat olive oil on medium heat and cook rings once heated for no more than 1 minute, flipping once to brown evenly. Place on paper towel to soak up excess oil.
Once cooked, add salt, pepper and chilli and toss calamari. Serve with lemon and aioli mayo.
