  • ¼ cup Best Foods™ Mayonnaise

Method

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

  1. Rinse squid tubes and slice into fine rings about 5 mm wide, dry off on paper towels. 
  2. Whisk together flour, mayonnaise, water, lemon pepper and salt to make a thin batter. 
  3. Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a saucepan until medium-hot. Toss a few squid rings at a time in a small bowl of extra flour to give them a light dusting. 
  4. Then dip into the batter, drain off excess and fry 1‐2 minutes until golden. Drain on paper towels. Cook in batches so the oil stays hot. 
  5. Serve with delicious zesty dip and lime halves for squeezing.
