I learnt this recipe from Chef Jeffrey at Goshen Restaurant. He said its for a baked Lobster dish. But I used squids instead as I wanted to try the taste. Girls at home loved it.




Ingredients:
5 large squids(remove ink sac, cut into rings)
1 clove garlic(sliced thinly)

Batter mix:
5 tbsp Glutinous Rice Flour
2 tbsp Plain flour
1 tsp Double Action Baking Powder
1/4 cup water

Sauce:
50g melted butter
1 tsp Dill leaves(dried)
1 tsp Rosemary leaves(dried)
1 tsp salt

Method:
1. Mixed batter together, leave aside for 30 mins.
2. Mixed melted butter with herbs and salt. Set aside.
3. Heat up wok with oil, dip each squid ring with batter and deep fry till golden brown.
4. Drain well using paper towels.
5. use a frying pan, add herb butter to heat up.
6. Add sliced garlic to saute till fragrant.
7. Add fried calamari and toss with the sauce till its well coated(about 2 mins).
8. Remove and serve immediately.

was about to ask the same question on how to clean a lobster

depending on whether it's live or dead

For live ones, must remove the blood (urggggg). but some people like drinking it

Off-topic
just learned that crabs do have blood (green colour) Smile love

dill leaves : fresh ones, so far only seen in Carrefour, Cold Storage and Jason's.

clove garlic is garlic. Garlic are sold in bulbs(means many cloves make one big bulb). so 1 clove garlic means 1 pc of garlic

Some fusion cooking going on Gina Smile
Although I have never tried these herbs combination before
I have to test them.
Normally I would suggest a mustard dill sauce(google for it) or
dill,mint,parsley is a typical Turkish concoction used in many dishes more so in vegetarian cooking.
