So I used a medium sized bag bag of prepped calamari rings, I think maybe 1lb and seasoned with:
- garlic powder
- black pepper
- complete seasoning (my cooking version of a cheat sheet)
We also used:
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups flour
- 2 cups crushed cornflakes (pulsed in a food processor) or panko breadcrumbs (we didn't have).
Each ring was dipped and covered first in flour,
then dipped in the egg mixture
and finally covered in the crushed cornflakes
Before being deep fried in olive oil (I prefer olive oil, but any oil would be good). 2-3 minutes each side till golden brown. A bit time consuming with our small pot, but we didn't want to use to much oil. And I may have given away our deep fryer in downsizing for our move.
We had it with my husband's version of a tartar sauce, but marinara would be good too.
Fortunately there was enough of share, fill hubby and fuel me to finish my assignments. And feed him again later in the evening. Not healthy I know, but it was too good to not eat.
