Whether it's an indulgent supper or a decadent starter you're looking for, this tasty crispy fried squid recipe is quick and simple to do, but will definitely impress your guests!
Fresh Squid (approx 500g per person) (Buy it here)
Oil for deep frying
Plain Flour (enough to evenly coat all pieces)
Cumin (1-2 tsps)
Smoked Paprika (1-2 tsps)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1 lemon, quartered (to serve)

The Method

Step 1 –
Prepare the squid by slicing into evenly sized rings. Heat a deep fat fryer or deep-sided saucepan of oil to 180˚C.

Step 2 –
Mix together the flour, cumin, salt, pepper and smoked paprika and then toss the squid pieces in the mixture until evenly coated, shaking off any excess.

Step 3 –
Fry the squid in batches so as not to overload the pan. Lift the squid out when the coating starts to turn golden and crispy.

Step 4 –
Serve piled on a warm plate along with the wedges of lemon to garnish. Add a side of olives and a glass of wine and you have an indulgent supper or a tasty starter to a wonderful night of food!
