FRIED CALAMARI

Categories     appetizer

Time 30m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1 pound clean squid with tentacles, bodies cut into 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick rings
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons dried parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 lemons, cut into wedges
1 cup simple tomato sauce, recipe follows or jarred marinara sauce, warmed
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (32-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
2 dried bay leaves
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, optional

Steps:

  • Pour enough oil into a heavy large saucepan to reach the depth of 3 inches. Heat over medium heat to 350 degrees F. Mix the flour, parsley, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Working in small batches, toss the squid into the flour mixture to coat. Carefully add the squid to the oil and fry until crisp and very pale golden, about 1 minute per batch. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the fried calamari to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
  • Place the fried calamari and lemon wedges on a clean plate. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with the marinara sauce.
  • In a large casserole pot, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft and translucent, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add celery and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Saute until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and bay leaves and simmer uncovered on low heat for 1 hour or until thick. Remove bay leaves and check for seasoning. If sauce still tastes acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time to round out the flavors.
  • Add 1/2 the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Continue with remaining tomato sauce.
  • If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and pour 1 to 2 cup portions into freezer plastic bags. This will freeze up to 6 months.

LIGHT AND CRISPY CALAMARI WITH FRIED LEMONS



Light and Crispy Calamari with Fried Lemons image

Calamari is one of our favorite seafood dishes. They are crispy light bites of ocean candy and teach the essential technique of a quick dredge and deep-fry. It's very similar to fried chicken with a soak in dairy, which does a few important things. It sweetens the taste of fresh seafood by sucking out the strong ocean flavors that some don't like. It also creates the base of the crunchy batter by clinging to the cornmeal to make a phenomenal crust. And also like fried chicken, you can double dredge by running the crust through the cream, flour and cornmeal a second time. This technique also works with fish sticks, clams, oysters and cuttlefish. It's basically great for small bits of meat or seafood that need a crispy crust. Pair this with tomato sauce or some tartar sauce for a great starter or snack.

Time 1h30m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 (1 1/2 pound [680 g]) whole squid or 1 (12-ounce [340 g]) package cleaned squid
2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream
2 eggs
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/2 onion, thinly sliced on a mandoline
1/2 lemon, very thinly sliced
2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
3/4 cup (90 g) cornstarch
1/2 cup (75 g) cornmeal
1 teaspoon mild paprika
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 quarts (1.8 L) oil, for frying
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
1 tablespoon (6 g) grated lemon zest
Marinara, warmed, for dipping

Steps:

  • To make the calamari, clean the squid. To clean a whole squid, separate the head and tentacles from the body. With a paring knife, cut between the eyes and the tentacles, discarding the eye portion. In the center of the tentacles, push out a little round bead with the hard beak and discard it; reserve the tentacles. For the body section, peel off the flaps and the dark-colored membrane. Remove the quill, the plastic-like bone. Squeeze out the innards like squeezing out toothpaste. Rinse the tentacles and body sections and dry well. Cut the body sections into nice rings. Leave the legs intact.
  • Whisk the heavy cream and eggs together in a medium-size bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the squid, onion and lemon and refrigerate for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • To make the dredge mix, combine the flour, cornstarch, cornmeal, paprika, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.
  • Pour the oil into a heavy 5-quart (4.5 L) Dutch oven or any heavy-bottomed pot at least twice as deep as the oil and heat to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C) on a frying thermometer. Keep the lid nearby in case of emergency.
  • Drain the squid, onion and lemon, leaving some cream stuck to them, then immediately place in the bowl of flour. Roll everything around so the flour mix sticks to the cream like a heavy dredge. Knock off any excess. Fry in small batches until crispy and golden brown, about 1 minutes. Drain well on paper towels or a rack and season again with a little salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with the chopped parsley and lemon zest, and serve with the marinara.

CALAMARI FRITTI

Categories     appetizer

Time 38m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 pound whole squid, cleaned
1 cup milk
1 large egg
6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
Canola oil, for frying
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons paprika
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving
Smoked jalapeno aioli, for dipping, recipe follows
Tomato-basil sauce, for dipping, recipe follows

Steps:

  • Rinse the squid under cool water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the body of the squid into 1/2-inch rings and trim the tentacles as necessary. Combine the milk, egg, and basil leaves in a bowl; mix with a fork until lightly beaten. Put the prepared calamari in the milk mixture and stick it in the refrigerator while getting everything else set up; it fries better if marinated and chilled for about 15 minutes.
  • Pour about 2 inches of oil in a fryer or large, heavy pot and heat to 375 degrees F. Mix the flour and paprika in a pie dish or plate; season with a fair amount of salt and pepper. Toss the calamari in the seasoned flour to coat. Fry for 1 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and salt, to taste. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried calamari to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and dipping sauces.
  • Smoked Jalapeno Aioli:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 2 canned chipotle chile in adobo
  • 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Pinch salt
  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend for 1 minute to combine. Set aside to allow the flavors to marry. Serve as a dipping sauce with fried calamari.
  • Yield: 1 cup
  • Tomato-Basil Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, hand-torn
  • 1 (16-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • Pinch sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Coat a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of the oil and warm over medium heat. Add the garlic and basil; cook, stirring, until soft. Add the crushed tomatoes and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Simmer the sauce for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the remaining olive oil. Serve as a dipping sauce with fried calamari.
  • Yield: 2 cups

CRISPY FRIED CALAMARI & AïOLI



Crispy fried calamari & aïoli image

Transport yourself to a seaside taverna with Mediterranean-inspired deep-fried squid rings and garlicky aïoli. Cooking this is easier than you think

Provided by Esther Clark

Categories     Starter

Time 20m

Number Of Ingredients 10

500g squid, tubes and tentacles, cleaned
vegetable oil, for deep-frying
50g plain flour
50g cornflour
¼ tsp baking powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
150g mayonnaise
1 large garlic clove, finely grated
pinch of saffron
½ lemon, juiced

Steps:

  • Cut the tentacles off the squid and put in a bowl. Slice the squid tubes into roughly 1cm thick rings and add to the bowl. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based pan over a low heat, ensuring it is no more than two-thirds full.
  • For the aïoli, mix the mayonnaise, garlic, saffron and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Toss the squid with the flour, cornflour, baking powder, cayenne and ½ tsp salt. When the oil has reached 170C on a thermometer, or when a cube of bread is dropped in and turns golden brown in 30 seconds, deep-fry the squid in batches for 2 mins, or until lightly golden and crisp. Set aside on a tray lined with kitchen paper. Serve the fried squid with the aïoli on the side for dipping.
