Shallow frying the dusted rings

Get your olive oil to medium heat, remember it has a low smoking temperature, and shallow fry the rings in batches. Make sure you do them quickly so they don’t go chewy :).



Some creamy aioli, a green salad and some oven baked chips (and a cold beer) is all the squid rings need :).
