SALT & PEPPER SQUID
3/4 cup rice flour
2 tsp Natural Sea Salt, freshly ground
2 tsp Ground White Pepper
Whole Black Peppercorns, freshly ground
500g squid tubes
5 cups peanut or vegetable oil
1 large red chilli, finely sliced

Method

  • Place the rice flour, Sea Salt and Ground White Pepper in a bowl.
  • Grind over Black Peppercorns and mix well.
  • With a sharp knife, slice the squid tubes lengthways so they open like a book.
  • Dry well with a paper towel.
  • If the tubes are particularly large, cut them in half across the width.
  • Score the inside in a 0.5cm criss-cross pattern, then cut them into 1cm strips, cutting down the length of the squid.
  • Toss the strips in the seasoned flour until they are heavily coated.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan, wok or deep fryer until hot.
  • Deep fry the squid in small batches for 1 – 2 minutes until crisp and golden but still tender.
  • Drain, then place on a plate lined with a paper towel.
  • Toss with fresh chilli slices and serve immediately.
