Easy Calamari Recipe

A while ago I made a delicious salt and pepper squid Chinese Restaurant style, but this time I made a different fried calamari. Using egg! Resep versi Bahasa ada di bagian bawah halaman ini.

My husband loves this dish, and sure I love making it to because it’s so easy! Happy tummy, happy family 😉

No joke, this recipe is actually very simple. Marinade with salt and pepper only and then cover in egg and flour. If you want to be more creative, you can add other spices such as cajun, garlic powder, also chilli.

For your information: If you buy the frozen squid, select the squid that is still intact but has been cleaned and then when you use the squid cut into pieces yourself. In my experience, squid that has been sliced and then frozen can cause the texture to be tougher than the one that is frozen still intact.

Easy Calamari Recipe
Serves: 2 - 4
  • 500gr squid, wash, then cut like ring
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 full tbsp tapioca flour / starch or can be replaced with corn flour
  • ½ cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • Cooking oil to fry
Cooking Instructions:
  1. Mix the flour with salt and pepper, mix well.
  2. Add the squid into the beaten egg. Make sure all the squid is well covered in egg.
  3. And then mix the squid into the flour, stir slowly until the squid is well coated with flour. (This process can be done twice depend on your taste).
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan, fry the squid until the flour is cooked and slightly changes colour to a golden brown. This process doesn't take a long at all. Other wise you will over cook your beautiful squid. Repeat until you have cooked all squid.
  5. Arrange the fried squid on a plate or bowl.
  6. Serve hot - best to enjoy with tartar sauce (available in supermarkets).
Serve while still hot-hot or at least warm. Because when it's cold, fried calamari texture is not as crispy as when still warm.
