The salad is to die for, very very tasty, we made it yesterday and today I feel like having the same thing. Our calamari, unfortunately, came out tough, so be careful when you're frying them as they become overdone soon. In the end we toasted a few pieces of bread because we found that the acidic taste of the salad was a bit difficult to take on its own (or with the tough calamari) and there was something missing. We will surely try this recipe again and I hope to master the skill of frying calamari not too much! Thanks a lot for posting, we love trying out new things.

Chef floWer, these were just perfect. My 11 year old son LOVES calamari (as do I) but not fond of the breaded deep fried style. These really hit the spot, texture and seasoning wise (we didn't make the salad but dipped the calamari in Tzatziki sauce). {Made and reviewed for NZ/AUS recipe swap #31, Aug. 2009}

This was a very fresh and light meal. I coated my calamari with flour, salt and pepper in a ziplock bag. I didn't use the peanuts due to nut allergy in the family. I cooked my calamari in the wok with sunflower oil infused with a clove of garlic. Another great recipe from Chef floWer.

Did not make the salad. I did have Szechuan pepper so I used it and I too, like Peggy, shook the calamri, salt and peppers in a plastic bag. This was delicious! I had never cooked calamari before but I sure will again. So simple and good. Thank you.

Great dish. We added some finely sliced bird's eye chillies (we like them) to the oil before cooking the squid. Yummo. I put the seasonings (including some of cornflour) and the squid in a plastic bag, and shook the dickens of out of it all. It's a fast and easy way to add the coating. Also, didn't have peanuts for the salad, but that didn't matter. Made and reviewed for Zaar World Tour.
