I checked in recipes forum and there is no thread for Fried Calamari. Tested a few recipes for fried calamari. Thought this should be simple but I must be missing something. Great fried calamari is crisp and not rubbery. So I cut squid into rings, soaked in buttermilk for 1hr. (also tested without),light coating of seasoned flour, fried in veg oil at 375 about 1 min, placed on paper towels. Nice color, nice seasoning. Terrible chewy texture. Do we have an amazing fried calamari pro on the board for advice. What am I doing wrong?
