Calamares: Crispy Squid Rings

Vienna Kaffeehaus Squid Rings

My squid rings

Squid rings a.k.a. Calamares in this part of the world is one of my favorite dishes. I love it especially when the rings are coated with crispy breadcrumbs and dipped in garlic mayo or thousand island dressing. I love eating calamares but I don't like preparing it because it takes a lot of time and patience. However, since I enjoy eating and cooking, I'll be sharing with you how I prepare my calamares. ;-)

Crispy Squid Rings

egg, beaten
Japanese bread crumbs
lemon or lime
oil for deep frying

minced garlic and mayonnaise

  1. Clean squid by removing its head and membrane. Rinse, then cut into rings.
  2. Marinate rings in salt, pepper, and lemon for at a maximum of 10 minutes.
  3. Coat rings in flour, then dip it in the egg mixture. Coat with the breadcrumbs. (You can add a bit of salt and pepper to the breadcrumbs for more flavor.)
  4. Deep fry coated rings in very hot oil. Once they turn into golden remove them from the oil and drain with paper towels.
  5. In a bowl mix minced garlic and mayo for the dip.
  6. Serve and eat your crispy squid rings!

Pistachio Ice Cream

It is no secret that I love ice cream... I have had several posts which show my favorite dessert presented in various ways.

This bowl of yummy green is Selecta Creations' Pistachio and Cashew ice cream. I love pistachio and cashew nuts and I was so amazed when I saw the ad on television that the two nuts are combined together in this heavenly delight!

I had sore throat when I bought a tub of this ice cream...the aftermath wasn't that desirable but it surely was worth it1 You have to try it and have a share of heaven!
