Mommy received a gift pack from Ajinomoto and one of the items in the loot bag is Crispy Fry Seasoned Crumbs. It is a mixture of seasonings and bread crumbs perfect for fried dishes like chicken, tempura and calamares.
Last week, I found squid sold in the market at low price. Buying such items at cheaper price is doubtful but when I checked on the squid it looks fresh naman. Calamares became part of our dinner that day.
To lessen the malansang amoy, I squeezed few calamansi on the squid and marinate it for about 10 minutes before frying.
According to the cooking instructions, no egg is needed when Crispy Fry Seasoned Crumbs is used. Just make sure that the meat is wet so the crumbs will stick on it.
However, upon trying the first batch, the crumbs did not stick on the squid. To resolve the problem, I went to the usual breading procedure. Dip the squid in flour and egg before rolling into Crispy Fry Seasoned Crumbs.
The calamares goes well but I got another problem. I need to hide the finished product first or else, wala nang matitira para sa dinner.
