Crunchy Cornmeal Fried Squid

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Squid, cleaned and sliced
  • 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c Cornmeal
  • 1/2 ts Freshly-ground black pepper
  • Oil, for deep frying


Heat 4 inches of neutral-flavored oil in large heavy pot to 360 degrees.
Drain any remaining liquid from squid. In a large bowl, combine flour,
cornmeal and pepper. Working in batches, drop a handful of squid into flour
mixture and toss to coat evenly. Lift out of flour, shake to remove excess,
and drop carefully into hot oil. Cook briefly until golden, about 1 to 2
minutes. Remove squid from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper
towels. Repeat with remaining squid until all are fried. Serve warm with
chipotle mustard dipping sauce. This recipe yields 4 appetizer servings.

Comments: To clean squid, pull gently on the tentacles to separate them
from the hood; most of the intestines will pull out as well. Cut off the
tentacles below the eyes and reserve. Pull out long plastic like "quill"
and discard it and the intestines. Rinse out the hoods and, if desired,
pull off the purple skin with your fingers or a paper towel. Slice body
into 1/4-inch rings. Set rings aside with the tentacles until needed.
