Author: Anita Jacobson




Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 1 hour 10 mins

Serves: 4


  • 400 gram cleaned squid (start with 800 gram to 1 kg)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • bread crumbs
  • Condiment
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Clean the squid by pulling off the head and tentacles, then remove the plastic-like gill, and finally peel off the skin. To make squid rings, simply cut across the cleaned body.
  2. Marinate squid with lime, salt, and pepper for 15 minutes.
  3. Prepare a pot for deep frying.
  4. Coat squid with egg, then bread crumbs. Repeat one more time so we get a double coating.
  5. Deep fry squid for no more than 2 minute. Once it is golden brown, quickly remove from the oil.
  6. Serve immediately with mayonnaise and lemon wedges.
