Salt And Pepper Squid Recipe

When it comes to seafood, we all know that it must be full of all essential nutrients starting from proteins to healthy fats and omega-3 fatty acids. And squid is one such seafood that is delicious and healthy as well. Quite versatile to be incorporated into a variety of dishes, squid has been a favourite for a long time now. And if you are planning to make a squid starter for your upcoming house party, then this dish is the one to bookmark.  The dish is an easy, healthy, gluten-free fried cuttlefish dish tossed with salt, black pepper and veggies. It is a total no-brainer to make this Cantonese Salt and Pepper Squid. Prepared in a similar manner to Cantonese Salt & Pepper Pork Chops, the fried pieces of calamari/squid are tossed in a mixture of crunchy stir-fried garlic, ginger, and hot green peppers. The squid is coated in cornstarch and then fried, yielding an airier crunch, but the mixture of semolina flour, all-purpose flour, and cornmeal makes for an extra hearty crunch with a real depth of flavor.
