Ingredients

  • 500 gm squid tubes
  • 120 gm feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shrimp
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 6 cups oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs fresh or dried
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Crumble the feta into a small bowl and add shrimp, lemon zest, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Using a small spoon, loosely fill each squid tube with about 1 ½ tbsp. of stuffing. Press the top of the squid tube together and secure with a wooden toothpick. Do not over stuff.
  3. Heat oil to 190º in a deep fryer or saucepan. Put the flour in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper. Put the milk in another shallow bowl and the breadcrumbs in a third.
  4. Dust the stuffed squid with flour, then dip in milk and then cover them with breadcrumbs.
  5. Carefully add the squid to the hot oil, 3 to 4 at a time. Cook for 1 to 2 mins or until golden brown. Do not overcook the squid or it will be tough. Drain the squid on a paper towel and serve immediately.
