Calamares Recipe

One of Pinoys' best beer buddy for pulutan is Calamares. It is a savoury squid rings dredge in flour and seasonings to give crisp and aroma.

  • 1 kg medium sized Squid
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • chili powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper

  1. Clean the Squid, remove the head, ink sacs and tentacles discarded, outer purple skin peeled off and do not cut squid open. Slice squid into ½ inch rings. (As for me, I already bought cleaned and sliced calamari)
  2. Marinate in lemon juice for about 15-30 minutes.
  3. Dip squid rings in beaten eggs, then dredge in flour seasoned with salt, pepper and chili powder.
  4. Heat oil in a wok and fry squid rings in hot oil a few pieces at a time until they turn golden brown, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook as this will make the squid tough.
  5. Remove squid rings from the wok and drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve with Garlic Mayonnaise Dip or any of your choice.
