    English_Rose's Note:

    This classic Cantonese starter is simple to make, but for real success, there are a couple of rules you need to follow. Most important: always use clean oil for your deep-frying. The resulting batter will be crisp, crunchy and light, as opposed to heavy, greasy and 'dirty' in flavour. And be sure to serve it immediately: this dish is best eaten piping hot.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse and dry the squid thoroughly.
    2. 2
      Slice each squid tube horizontally into 1/2in rings. Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine both types of flour with the chili powder, sea salt and Szechuan pepper. Add the squid and toss to coat, shaking off any excess flour.
    4. 4
      Fill a wok with oil to about a third full (about 2 cups) and heat until the surface seems to shimmer slightly.
    5. 5
      Add half the squid and deep-fry it for between 45 seconds and 1 minute, or until it's just tender and beginning to colour. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper. Repeat the process with the remaining squid.
    6. 6
      Arrange the lettuce leaves on a platter and top with the squid. Serve with the lemon wedges.

      I used peeled shrimp and it was really good. I will try it with calamari next time. It was super easy. I didn't use the chili powder, I used a pinch of cayanne.

      Outstanding, I'm a big fan of squid and I love spicy foods so I knew I would love this recipe. I cut the recipe down to one serving (the rest of the family was eating steak but I don't eat red meat) and made it as directed, it was perfect. Served it with Oven Onion Rings. Thank you English_Rose
