Baby Squid

Baby squid

Ingredients 

  1. 1 kg of baby squid
  2. 2 onions 
  3. 2-3 cloves of garlic 
  4. Maze floor (course is better)
  5. Olive oil 
  6. Salt
  7. Black pepper 

First make sure all the squid has been cleaned.

You do this by removing the plastic like inside parts.

Once he is cleaned, then give him a good rinse in water.

Separate the heads from the bodies.

Now we’re ready for shallow frying.

Put some oil into a pan, you will need about a centimetre or so, then get it heated up on a fairly high heat.

Add salt and pepper to some maize flour on a plate.

Dust the baby squid in the maize flower, in Spain you can get a course maze flour which is best.

Fry a few of the squid at a time, don’t put to many into the pan, as this will cause the pan to cool down and the water from the squid will boil them. (not what we want at all)!

Only fry for a few minutes, if you cook them for too long they will become rubbery. (again not what we want). 

As soon as the first batch is ready place onto kitchen paper to drain, and at start the next batch.

Repeat until they’er all cooked.

Serve straight away with lemon salt and maybe a dash of paprika.

Job done!
