I’m on a seafood diet.

I see food and I eat it.

I am thinking about those crispy fried octopus tentacles in Tea House somewhere in Hong Kong. Or I must say actually everywhere, because every Cha Chaan Teng or Yum Cha place or street food stalls serve those scrumptious goodness.  Anyway, my recipe here used calamari and I used panko bread crumbs as coating which is makes the calamari rings super crispy. The ingredients and seasoning can be adjusted as your desired. Follow your taste.


Ingredients :

1 large calamari (160 g)
Juice of a half lemon
1/2 tsp salt
Oil for frying

Flour mixture :

75 g plain flour
75 g rice flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
1/2 tsp salt

Coating :

1 large egg, beaten
100 g panko (Japanese bread crumbs)

Directions :

1. Cut calamari into rings, add lemon juice and salt. Marinate for
15 minutes.
2. Mix all ‘flour mixture’ ingredients together.
Mix flour mixture with calamari, toss until calamari coated well
with flour.
3. Dip in beaten egg and coat well with panko bread crumbs evenly.
4. Deep fry per batch in plenty of hot oil medium high heat until
all sides turns golden brown and crispy. Rest on paper towels.
5. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

  • Looks like they turned out nicely. I’m a huge fan of seafood. Ladies Prism is coming soon to romance the world. Scotian Breeze is the movement. Treasure Words, Collect Figures is the company. History in the making; stay tuned.
