Salt and Pepper Squid is the best way to taste seafood and spice in one amazing dish...



Preparation Time:

15 mins

Cooking Time:

10 mins


Squid Tubes, cleaned - 2
 White Peppercorns - 2 tsps
 Sea Salt - to taste
 Chilli Flakes - 1 tsp
 Plain Flour - 100 g
 Oil - 1 litre, for deep frying
 Fresh Coriander, roughly chopped - handful
 Thaitalian Tingler Chilli Jam - 2 tbsps


• In a pestle and mortar crush the white peppercorns with the sea salt.

• Slice each squid into halves and with the inner part facing upwards, score the squid diagonally every 5mm, then cut the squid into 5cm x 2cm lengths.

• In a bowl combine the salt and pepper with the flour and chilli flakes. Next add the scored squid and toss well to coat the squid completely.

• Heat the oil in a large pan until it reaches 180°C. (Test with cubes of bread, they should sink and toast to golden brown within a few seconds and then float back to the surface). Fry the squid in the hot oil in two batches for approximately 1 minute until the squid has curled up into thin cylinders and started to turn golden.

• Drain on some kitchen paper then serve on a plate scattered with the coriander, and the Thaitalian Tingler Chilli Jam as a dipping sauce.
