    Ok! For those who say not crispy, hmm betting you did not dry your squid. Then because of a family member's food allergy I used 50/50 corn vegetable oil. The only other change I made was to cut back on cayenne and add about a teaspoon of garlic powder. We really love garlic in this house. Finally, your best friend for frying ANYTHING is cast iron. I had a calamari pizza on vacation, this is the way I'm going to prepare the calamari.

    This was horrible! Surprised it wasn't taste tested first. "Batter" tastes too floury and doesn't get crispy
