Came back from my sister's place last week with lots of goodies, still have some calamari and fish left in the freezer. Those calamari were fished by my brother in-law, he went on a fishing trip when I was there.
During a week of stay there, I ate lots of calamari. Teased my lovely sis if we need a cholesterol check after eating calamari for a week. Those calamari were so fresh that T also loved it. In the past, he would never touch those bought from market whenever I cook.
I have been eating different flavours of fried calamari last two weeks, this is one of my favourites - spicy fried calamari. For the coating, mix together ground black pepper, 5-spice powder, salt and corn flour. Pat dry calamari and coat with the coating mixture, then deep fry for not more than 2 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges and mayonnaise.
...got to check my cholesterol level SOON.
