Chicharrón del Calamares


Serves- 6
Preparation- 1 hour


  • 2lbs of squid
  • ½ liter of oil (we recommend that you use corn oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 grams of cornstarch
  • Salt and Pepper (use this to taste)
  • Mayonnaise (again, use this to taste)


  • Wash all of the squid. Once the squid is washed prepare it by cutting it carefully into pieces that are suitable for eating.
  • Crack both eggs into a bowl and beat the eggs well (prepare as if you were going to scramble the eggs)
  • Add the 100 grams of cornstarch to the beaten eggs, add salt and pepper and stir all the contents until they are evenly mixed.
  • With a brush, cover all of the squid with the beaten egg mix you made above.
  • Once all of the squid is covered with the egg mx covered add oil to a pan.
  • Once the oil is hot fry the squid until it is all golden brown.

*Use mayonnaise or tartar sauce and creole as a dipping sauce for the fried squid.
