Recipe Description

Fried Calamari Ring is a popular dish that is made from squid. While calamari rings can be a bit tricky to make at home, it's actually not that difficult. All you need to do is cut the squid into rings, coat them in flour or breadcrumbs, and then fry them in hot oil.

Squid can quickly become tough and rubbery if it's cooked for too long. So, when you're frying squid rings, be sure to keep a close eye on them. When the calamari rings are golden brown and crispy, they're done. Serve them with your favourite tartar dipping sauce and enjoy!

  1. Mix the evaporated milk, egg, salt and AJI-SHIO® PEPPER into a bowl.
  2. Cut the calamari into rings of 2cm.
  3. Put the calamari to the mix and let it marinate for 20 minutes.
  4. Mix the corn flour and wheat flour into another bowl.
  5. Heat the oil.
  6. Dip the calamari into the flour mix.
  7. Dip the calamari again into the marinating mixture.
  8. Then dip the calamari into the bread crumbs.
  9. Fry the coated calamari until it is crispy and golden brown.
  10. Remove the calamari and dry off the excessive oil with kitchen towel.
  11. Serve it with the Tartar Sauce.
