Heat the oil and fry the calamari in batches until crisp and cooked through – it’s a matter of seconds. Drain on paper towels. Serve the calamari on rolls with butter lettuce, cucumber, onion rings and garlic mayonnaise. A dash of lemon juice will add even more zest.
TIP Defrost the calamari in a little milk to tenderise it. You can also serve the fried calamari with savoury rice instead of the rolls.
