Fried Calamari dishes out tender pieces of squid soaked in buttermilk. It gets coated in seasoned flour. Then the whole thing is deep-fried to a golden brown. A rather tricky appetizer brings the restaurant home! Unleash your frying thermometer to maintain the perfect oil temperature. Extremely hot oil has the potential of burning the squid. Contrarily, relatively cold oil drives the squid to absorb excess oil and thus become greasy. Fried Calamari tastes the best if served immediately.
