Top-ranked recipe named "Deep-Fried Calamari"
Pour the cream into a large bowl and set in the egg yolks, cheese, flour, garlic and oregano to make a smooth batter. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Heat enough oil in a deep pan for deep-frying. When hot enough the oil should be 160-180?C (325-350F); a piece of bread dropped in the oil will sizzle and become golden brown in 30 seconds. Dip the squid rings and tentacles into the batter, one at a time and put into the oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve immediately, sprinkled with salt.
dionemarie69 5 years agoThis was VERY messy. When we cooked it, the batter fell away from the calamari, and the oil bubbled up significantly. It was hard to control a 'boil over'. When we finally finished, there were mixed outcomes. One third had no breading, one third had clumps, and one third was burnt. It tasted good, but e might try a different recipe next time.
