Recipe Ingredients for Buttermilk-Battered Calamari

1/5 cups vegetable oil (2 cup for frying)
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pound squid, cleaned and cut into 1/2 inch rings

Recipe Directions for Buttermilk-Battered Calamari

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Pour buttermilk into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, pepper and oregano. Dip squid rings into the buttermilk, then into the seasoned flour.

  3. Place the coated pieces in the hot oil, and fry in small batches, turning if necessary, for even cooking. When evenly browned, remove to paper towels to drain, and continue with the rest of the squid. Serve hot.

  4. Note: We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

  5. Another Suggestion: For best results soak the squid in 2 cups of buttermilk for 2 hours, it makes it very tender then drain in a colander, dump all of the squid into flour mixture but up the amount of flour to 2 cups and toss with your hands and then deep fry.
