Caught anything lately? Post up how you cooked it here and if it was a success. Doesn't only have to be fish....

Salt and pepper squid

Postby bunyip » 01 Aug 2016, 20:11

Picked this one up from River Cottage and is just a bit different and sounded interesting:
Season flour with Szechuan peppercorns (dry fried before hitting the mortar and pestle) and salt (we use Maldon sea salt).
Cook in the usual manner and serve with sweet chilli sauce:
Red currant jelly
finely chopped fresh chilli (small hot one)
White wine vinegar
Combine and heat through.
Makes a difference from the ubiquitous supermarket chilli sauce and SWMBO likes the different pepper, I don't like fish so have a steak while she enjoys.
My brother in law reckons I am strange as I catch fish but don't eat them, I remind him he plays golf but doesn't eat golf balls.

Hi Iain,

Have you ever tried potato flour & Rice Bran oil with salt and pepper squid? If not, I highly recommend it as it doen't seem to hold as much oil and gives a nice crispy coating.

Can't help you with any golf ball recipes.

Cheers,

Mike.

We use rice bran oil a lot but will give the potato flour a try, thanks, now try to use your imagination for those golf balls.
