It’s easy to make crispy flour fried squid. You only need to prepare squid, flour, cooking oil, salt, and pepper
To make special flour fried squid that is just right, pay attention to the following tips.
- In order not to be tough, choose fresh squid. Watch and touch the squid meat. If the meat is still chewy and the skin is shiny, it means the squid is still fresh.
- To get rid of the fishy smell of seafood, coat the squid with lemon juice. This technique is also useful for softening the squid meat so that it cooks faster.
- Bad odors can also appear because you are not careful when cleaning the squid. The correct step in cleaning the squid is to wash the squid, then remove the inside of the squid. Then coat the squid with a deodorizing agent like the example in the previous point. After that, wash again before processing so that the smell of the fishy remover does not affect the fried flour seasoning.
- The squid can be tough because it’s been cooked too long. Therefore, it is enough to fry for approximately 2-3 minutes.
- So that the flour can bloom perfectly when fried, there are additional ingredients that need to be given, namely baking soda. Mix 1 tsp of baking soda in the flour mixture, stirring well to mix thoroughly.
- In frying, the oil must be really hot so that the baking soda will expand when the flour-coated squid is added.
- The degree of doneness is highly dependent on taste. Generally, deep-fried squid can be removed from the oil if it is yellow-brown. So that the cooked surface can be flat, fry while turning.
