Chinese Salt and Pepper Squid



Squid fried with salt and pepper is a great tradition for all kinds of seafood. Ideal for snacks and finger food, the tender squid can be served on its own, with noodles or with rice.

Recipe for Chinese Salt and Pepper Squid
Ingredients for Chinese Salt and Pepper Squid:
  • 450 g baby or medium squid
  • 2 tbsp coarse salt
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp rice flour or cornflour
  • oil for frying
  • 2 limes, halved
Method:
  1. Prepare squid by pulling head apart from body. Sever tentacles and trim. Rinse inside body sac and pull put backbone, then clean it inside and out, removing any skin as well.
  2. Slice squid into rings, then pat them really dry.
  3. Place on a dish with tentacles. Mix salt and pepper with flour, tip it onto squid and toss well, making sure it is fairly evenly coated.
  4. Heat enough oil in a wok or a heavy-based saucepan for deep-frying. Cook squid in batches, until rings turn crisp and golden.
  5. Drain on kitchen towel and serve with lime to squeeze.
  6. Garnish with chopped coriander or spring onions.

I agree with anonymous. there are some steps which are omitted here. the ingredients are fine but just steps to prevent the batter from falling off the squid

salty can be adjusted to suit one's taste. but some tips would be helpful
