Footlong rolls, (add margarine inside roll for sweeter taste)


Add 1 cup flour + salt in a medium sized bowl.

Add 3 eggs in a bowl and beat slowly…

Dip a few thawed calamari rings into the flour. Toss till coated evenly.
Dip the flour coated rings in to the egg mixture.
Mix the flour and egg coated Calamari rings with Panko (similar to breadcrumbs)

set stove to 70% heat, add cooking oil to medium-large sized pan.
Fry for 5 to 10 minutes, be gentle as the base of the calamari may crumble off while frying.
for this reason use a bigger pan to separate the Calamari, once the rings look light/golden brown, its ready to take out.

“TIP” if the 1st batch comes out rubber in texture, it means you over cooked it”

Use kitchen paper towel in a strainer to ensure the remaining oil drips out

Serve and enjoy
