INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Parsley
  • 1 1/3 cup Tomato Sauce (Canned)
  • 1 cup, chopped Hazelnuts or Filberts Nuts
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 lb Squid (Mixed Species)
  • 1/4 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 cup Peanut Oil
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 fruit (2-1/8" dia) Lemon
  • 2 serving Atkins Flour Mix

DIRECTIONS

Use the Atkins recipe to make Atkins Flour Mix, you will need 2/3 cup.
 
  1. Use 2 cups oil for frying in this recipe.
  2. For sauce: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add parsley and red pepper flakes and sauté for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes (sauce may be made up to two days in advance).
  3. In a food processor, process hazelnuts, flour mix and cayenne until nuts are finely ground, about 1 minute. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Dredge calamari in mixture, tapping to remove any excess, and set aside.
  4. Heat oil in a deep sauce pot until temperature reaches 375°F. Fry calamari in batches, 30 seconds per batch, until firm and light golden. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Sprinkle with salt and serve with sauce and lemon wedges.
