I love calamari at restaurants but it's usually overpriced and sometimes overcooked. Made this recipe for a fraction of what I pay at a restaurant and it was wonderful!

REVIEW: recipe rating
I bought frozen squid rings so I didn't have to cut them up. Thawed them and then proceeded with the recipe. I added a little cayenne for flavor and paprika for color to the flour mix. These were just like you order at a restaurant! Definitely be careful not to over cook them though. I let one batch cook for about 2 minutes because I got distracted and they were like chewing rubber bands! The ones taht cooked until just golden were perfect.
