Best Homemade Calamari.


We love calamari around here. It's one of our very favorite foods. A couple years ago, Adam and I made our first homemade calamari, and since then we've never looked back. 
Not only is this delicious, but it's super quick to make.

You will need: 

1-1 1/2 cups of flour.
Salt and pepper.
1 cup of milk.
1 lb. of frozen calamari (rings or tentacles, or both)---thawed.
Cooking oil

Lemon 
Cocktail sauce

To make.

Pour oil into a pan. You want it at least three inches full.

Toss salt and pepper with flour.

Dip a large handful of calamari in milk, drain off and toss in flour mixture until well coated.

Heat oil until it's super hot, and sizzles is you flick a bit of flour in (that's 350F, is you have thermometer).

Gently put your flour coated calamari into oil.

Cook for 10-15 minutes. When done the calamari will be  golden brown on the outside.

Drain well on paper towels, and repeat until all the calamari is cooked.

Serve with lemon and sauce.
