Preparation

Cucumber Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Calamari

  1. Preheat the oil in a deep fryer to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the beer, 1 cup (150 g) of flour, oregano and salt until the batter is smooth. Season with pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a plate, combine the remaining flour and cracker crumbs.
  4. Rinse the squid and pat dry. Cut the bodies into 1/2-inch (1 cm) rings. Toss a few pieces at a time in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Dip the calamari rings in the batter. Dredge again in the flour mixture.
  5. Fry the squid for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on the paper towels. Serve hot.
  6. Serve with the cucumber sauce and lemon wedges, if desired.
