Crispy Calamari Fry

Have you tried Calamari/Squid Fry? Frankly I was never attracted to it. I always used to take my husband away from the fish section when ever he wants to buy it. Once I bought it and fried it, but never felt any thing great. This time again we bought it as we were forced by a sales man. He only suggested this recipe and about the fish spice. First my husband made it, it was tasty, I made little changes and made it again tasted even better 🙂 . Check it out, you can even have it as a snack.
