Fried Crispy Squid Rings (Calamares Fritos)

1.  1/2 kilo small or medium-sized squids. Remove head for another use. Peel off skin, slice

into 1/4-inch thick slices. Wash and drain well.

2. Put squid rings in a bowl and season each ring with 1/2 tsp. of fine salt and pepper, 1

tbsp. calamansi or lemon juice. Add  1/4 cup fresh milk.

3. Dredge/coat each squid ring well in 2 cups all-purpose flour mixed with 1 tsp. Spanish


4. Fry immediately in 4 cups of very hot oil until they float. Squid tends to spatter if not

coated well; prepare a cover for yourself. Retrieve fried squid rings with slotted strainer.

Drain on paper napkins.

5. Serve with lemon wedges.
