Fried squid is a soft, succulent dish- the garlic mayo adds a cheeky fast food flavour.

  • 200ml (7fl oz) water
  • 75g (3oz) plain flour
  • Salt
  • Cooking oil
  • Lemon or lime juice
  • Fresh parsley

  2. Pour the water into a bowl and sift over plain flour and a large pinch of salt.
  3. Whisk well until smooth.
  4. Dip the squid rings in the batter mix, then deep-fry, in batches, in hot oil for 2-3 mins until crisp and golden.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  6. Season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, a squeeze of lime or lemon juice and some chopped fresh parsley. Serve with garlic mayonnaise.
