I am not sure if any of you eat squid at all.  I rarely cook and eat squid because it is a bit tough to chew.  It’s just like chewing rubber that usually makes it unappealing to us.  I guess that is because I didn’t know that we should blanched the squid for a few minutes before cooking or frying it.  So, I tried to make calamari few weeks ago and here it is.

What we need are:  big squid (the squid I bought were kinda small and couldn’t find bigger one), garlic, shallot, an egg and flour.  Wash, clean and cut the squid and dip them in the mixture of beaten egg and flour.  Add fine chop of garlic, shallot and seasoning to your taste.  If you have bread crumbs, that’s even better. You can just roll the squid in those and fry them.  You may prepare a dipping sauce to go with the calamari to add flavour to it too.  Bon appetite.
