what you need
  • 1 lb. fresh squid
  • 3/4 cup corn meal
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • Salt and fresh pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced small
  • 3 Tbsp. minced parsley
  • 1 lemon
make it
Cut squid into rings, strips, and curly-cues as desired (cut above the eye.) Mix corn meal and flour in a plastic bag. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste and shake well. Dry off squid and place in the bag. Shake well and set aside.

Heat oil so that a small piece of bread will float in it, not dissolve. Take squid out of the bag a handful at a time and fry for approximately 45 seconds before removing.

Dry off on paper towels and repeat the process until the squid is all fried. Put quid on plate, garnish with diced onion and parsley. Serve with cut lemon wedges.
