      Place the calamari and buttermilk in a bowl and cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large pot until it reaches 400°F.

      Hi Mos,

      I found using cornflour(cornstarch), heavily seasond with fresh cracked black pepper and salt, made a wonderfully light, crispy, almost tempura coating.

      ForeverForties…that sounds interesting! Do you soak the calamari in buttermilk first and then dip or do you do something else? Inquiring minds want to knowgiggle smiley
