Universal acclaim from the family !
the recipe from "Out of the blue" - I used half quantites for 3 generous serves. David is 18 and eats enough for 2 normal people.
1 kg Squid hoods and tentacles
2 crushed Garlic Cloves
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
300 g Plain Flour
300 g Cornflour
2 tablespoons Salt
2 tablespoons cracked pepper
1 tablespoon Five-spice powder
1 L vegetable oil for frying
Cut the squid into 2cm x 6cm strips.
Score strips with a sharp knife in a criss-cross pattern.
Combine the squid, eggs, garlic and soy in a bowl and marinate for up to 1 hour.
Combine the flour, cornflour, salt, pepper and five-spice powder in a bowl.
Pour oil into wok and heat to about 180°C.
Remove squid from egg mixture and add a few pieces at a time to the flour mix.
Shake off excess flour and fry squid in the hot oil.
It is important not to fry too many pieces at a time.
Serve with cucumber slices, coriander and sweet chilli sauce.
