Homemade Crispy Calamari

This was a very easy recipe I modified from Allrecipes. There are 6 ingredients all together and I finished this within an hour. It was a great addition to the Creamy Pesto Fettuccine I made and this was a hit with my friends and family that tried it.  


  • 3 cups of canola oil 
  • 12 squid rings (I realized afterward I had used too many!)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
** serve with lemon


1. Defrost your squid rings (if frozen) by running in cold water for a few minutes. DO NOT run in hot water as this will cook it. Drain and set aside. 

2. Throw in all of your dry ingredients into a bowl - this will make the batter for the squid rings: flour, salt, oregano and ground black pepper.

3. Stir!

4. One ring at time, rub the dry mixture onto the squid ring like so:

5. Put cooking oil in a pot or skillet on medium heat:

6. Put several squid rings in (you can attempt to do all at once if there is room) for 3 minutes total.

7. Remove and put on papertowel to remove the oil, and then serve!

Bon app├ętit!
