Who doesn’t love fried calamari? Fried calamari are rings of squid and tentacles deep-fried to a crispy golden perfection. Served alongside lemon wedges, marinara sauce or aioli, this is the perfect recipe to one up grandma at her dinner party.
Vietnamese Squid or Calamari Salad (Goi Muc) is a light and refreshing appetizer to go along side any entrée. Like all Vietnamese salads, this squid salad is coated with a sweet, salty, sour and spicy fish sauce dressing and topped with crunchy fried garlic.
We opted for a seafood boil this Thanksgiving. It’s quicker to make and everyone enjoys grabbing their favorite seafood. We did King crab legs, clams, large shrimp, sausage and sweet corn. The sauce that brought everything together was a fiery and buttery garlic lemon pepper. Everything came together in under 30 minutes. If you have half an hour to spare, you too can make a feast fit for a King.
