For your flour:

  • 150g plain flour
  • 50g cornflour
  • 40g fine polenta
  • 15g salt
  • 8g freshly ground black pepper

For your dip:

  • 100g mayonnaise
  • 40g Sriracha
  • A squeeze of lime

For your garnish:

  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • A lemon
  • Defrost prepped baby squid (available at most large supermarkets).
  • Remove the squid’s tentacles, beak, internal shell and insides as shown in the above picture.
  • Discard these bits, but keep the legs (they are delicious, trust us!)
  • Then finely slice your squid into equally sized rings.

In a bowl mix all your flour ingredients together: 

  • 150g plain flour
  • 50g cornflour
  • 40g fine polenta
  • 15g salt
  • 8g freshly ground black pepper
  • Then heavily coat your squid in the flour, tossing with your hands until the squid is no longer sticky.
  • Heat oil in a pan to 180 degrees.
  • Next deep fry your squid in the oil for three minutes or until golden brown and the bubbles have subsided.
  • Finally drain onto a kitchen cloth to remove excess oil, then garnish with lemon and freshly chopped parsley.

For your dip, simply weigh and mix the below ingredient together and serve with your calamari:

  • 100g mayonnaise
  • 40g Sriracha
  • A squeeze of lime
