Smoky Bacon Fried Calamari Recipe

  1. Add a layer of paper towel to 2 plates and set them aside.
  2. Add the bacon to a large sauté pan, over medium heat, and cook until it's crispy, about 4 minutes per side. Let the bacon strips drain on 1 of the towel-lined plates. (Leave the bacon fat in the pan!)
  3. Pat squid dry with a paper towel and cut them into approximately 1 to 2-inch rings. Set aside.
  4. In medium-sized mixing bowl, add the flour, corn meal, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Mix to blend and then add the calamari rings. Use your hands to toss them into the flour mixture, being sure they are all very well coated.
