Preparation

Defrost the frozen calamari. Cut the lemons into wedges.

Method

  1. 1 Sift the flours into a bowl, season, and gradually whisk in the water until the mixture is the thickness of double cream.
  2. 2 Heat the oil in a wok or deep frying pan. To test if it’s hot enough, add a cube of bread – it should brown in 30 seconds.
  3. 3 Dip a third of the calamari into the batter to coat, and lower into the hot oil. Fry for 2 minutes, turning occasionally, until light golden and crisp.
  4. 4 Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  5. 5 Repeat, cooking in batches.
  6. 6 Season and serve with the mayonnaise and lemon wedges.
