Catalan Calamari

(for four portions)

5 squid, cleaned and sliced into rings
(If you bought whole squid, cook the tentacles as well - crispy & delicious!
1¾ tablespoon of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1¼ cups of vegetable oil
½ lemon - cut into wedges, for garnish 


Preheat oil in a heavy, deep frying pan or pot.
The oil should be heated to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Mix together flour, salt, oregano and black pepper in a medium size mixing bowl.
If necessary, pat-dry the squid with kitchen towel.
Dredge the squid through flour and spice mixture.
Place squid in oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until light brown. Do not over-cook as the squid will become tough.
Dry squid on paper towels. Serve with wedges of lemon.
