Fried Calamari with Cucumber Dressing


1 lb calamari (cleaned & bodies cut into rings, mixed together with tentacles)
1 tbsp black pepper
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Cucumber Dressing (recipe follows)


Mix the calamari with salt & pepper. Toss in flour and shake off excess. Add to hot oil and cook 2-3 minutes. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Put onto plate and sprinkle with some salt. Serve sauce on the side and garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.


Cucumber Dressing
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp garlic. minced
1 tbsp chives or green onion, minced
1 cup plain yogurt

Shred half of the cucumber and finely chop the other half. Mix both with the rest of the ingredients and chill well.


*A note about frying-

If you have a fry baby or some kind of deep fryer that works great--if not you may add oil to a pot and with a thermometer, try to keep it at about 350-375 degrees. Be careful not to fill your pot more than 1/3 full with oil or when you add some thing it’s likely to boil over---be careful!

Serves 4-6
