In keeping with our aim to include more seafood in our diet, I picked up some calamari a little while ago.
And with the help our cheap yet effective deep fryer, we soon had ourselves quite the tasty cafe-esque meal.
Salt and pepper calamari – served with a roasted pumpkin and spinach salad.
And yes – that is a good dollop of tomato sauce on the side. For this gal loves her tomato sauce!
To make the calamari – we simply sliced it into rings – and dusted them in rice flour, cracked pepper and salt. The result?
Calamari rings that were wonderfully crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside.
The salad was a bit of a mish-mash of whatever we had in the fridge.
Pumpkin peeled, cubed and roasted for 40 minutes or so. Spinach leaves, mushrooms and pepitas.
Oh and sauce. Don’t forget the sauce.
What about you? Do you like to cook calamari?
