Squid Fries

My family knows how to eat, you guys. Seriously. When Mom and Dad went on their anniversary trip to Sandy Aygo, they discovered this great thing: spicy fried calamari with garlic and jalapenos!! (disclaimer: not actual name of dish they ordered)

They were sooo delicious that they had to recreate them for us!! Lucky us!!! You eat them like french fries. And squid is actually nice and cheap if you buy it at the Asian market.

I will now show you the process:

STEP ONE: dip the squid in egg wash

STEP TWO: coat in bread crumbs

STEP THREE & FOUR: Fry and toss with garlic, salt, and jalepenos.

And serve.

They were so tasty, we made them two nights in a row!! And yes, those are squid tentacles that you see. We got squid strips the first night (which was good because Christian was over and I think the whole squids would've been a little too much weirdness-factor) and we ate the whole (baby) squids the second night. And they were so good... You don't even know. Pictures can't even describe.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, I hate to break it to ya, but it ain't. You have to taste these things to believe how good they are!!


  1. You're braver than I am, Meesh! It looks good, but I don't think I could handle squid! I've had calamari before and it's just a little too rubbery for my taste!

  2. Dude, have you ever heard of Rocky Mountain Oysters? Well, I had those once, not knowing what they actually are (silly me, I thought they were oysters!)... just google it. they weren't awful, but i didn't finish them (specially after I found out what they are...ick!)


Thanks for leaving a comment! They make me smile! ^-^
