How to make Calamares


  • 2 1/4 lbs medium sized squid
  • 2 pieces eggs
  • 1 cup plain flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 cup oil
  • 30 ml fresh lime juice (calamansi juice)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • mayonnaise, for dip
  1. Clean the squid, remove the head, ink sacs and tentacles discarded, outer purple skin peeled off and do not cut squid open.
  2. Slice squid into 1/2 inch rings. Marinate in lime juice for about 25 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs.
  4. Dip squid rings in eggs, then dredge in flour.
  5. Heat oil in a wok and fry squid rings in hot oil a few pieces at a time until they turn golden yellow, about 1 minute. Do not overcook.
  6. Remove squid rings from the wok and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with mayonnaise.
