Batter for Fried Squid

Batter for Fried Calamari (can be used for other fish, or frying vegetables too)



1 cup flour (approximately)

1/4 cup prosecco (approximately)

dash of salt

dash of cayenne pepper


Add all the ingredients together, using a whisk to blend. Add more prosecco (or seltzer water if you don't have enough prosecco) until the batter is the consistency of a thin pudding. 

Dip the sliced squid rings into the batter, lift with a fork to wipe off excess, then drop into hot oil. Turn once when golden on the first side and remove when golden on the second side. Drain on paper towels and season with salt immediately.
