Salt and Pepper Squid


I love salt and pepper squid. Its so simple and tasty.


10 Dried red Chilli
3 tablespoons Salt
4 tablespoons black peppercorns
500 g Rice flour
1 kg Squid Just the body and legs
500 ml Peanut Oil
2 tablespoons Coriander chopped
2 Limes Cut in half for squeezing


Dry roast salt, peppercorns and chili in a pan over a low heat until salt starting to turn golden and spices fragrant.

Place into a mortar and pestle and allow to cool before grinding to a fine consistency.

Mix through the rice flour.

Heat oil in a wok or saucepan to 180 degrees Celsius

Cut squid into thin strips keep the legs whole.

Dust lightly in the flour mix and cook a small batch at a time to retain the heat in the wok to give your squid crunch.

Drain onto absorbent paper and place onto you plate.

Serve with some chopped coriander over the top, a bit more salt if you wish and also some lime wedges
