I love calamari although I have never made any at home. It's always been more of a treat type of dish that is ordered when I am out to dinner somewhere. As part of the Tastemaker program through Foodbuzz, I was able to try out the Kikkoman Kara-Age Soy-Ginger Coating Mix. This mix was super easy to use and had a wonderful flavor. I literally just had to buy the calamari and fry it up, and my family loved it. I was lucky that I got to try a piece before it was all gone. This was calamari made easy, and I will definitely be buying this product in the future.
Here is a link to the Kikkoman product I used.
- 1 box Kikkoman Kara-Age Soy-Ginger Coating Mix (I used both packages inside)
- 1 pound fresh calamari, cleaned and cut into pieces
- oil for frying
Heat oil in a fry pan on medium high until very hot. Add Calamari in batches into the Kara-Age mix and shake to coat evenly. Then add to hot oil cooking in batches as well (do not over-crowd the pan). Cook for just a few minutes, then remove onto a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining calamari until it is all cooked. Then try to share and not eat it all yourself. :)
