Fried Squid

Evan Sung for the New York Times

While cooking squid I tried innumerable coatings. I have two conclusions to report: If you like cakey batter, make what amounts to a thick pancake batter. If you just want a little bit of crust (this is my preference), dredge lightly in flour; it doesn’t get any simpler or better.

Makes: 4 servings
Time: About 20 minutes


  • Neutral oil, like grapes…
