Fried calamari is most famously known for it’s presence under the appetizer section in most restaurants. Yet, there is much more to this delicious dish than meets the eye. For one thing, it’s squid (duh) and for this reason many of us shy away from trying to make this at home because it’s…well…squid. In reality, this tentacular cephalopod is quite easy to cook up and can be done in a matter of five minutes.
