Fried Calamari with Roasted Garlic and Lime Aiõli
Fresh squid is delicious but sometimes hard to find and somewhat intimidating to clean. Instead, look for frozen tubes. They don’t take long to thaw and they are super-easy to prepare. Try the flavorful garlic-and-lime sauce on fried fish sandwiches or po’boys too.
Baking roux—or, in this case, simply flour—instead of cooking the flour with equal parts oil omits the bulk of the fat calories. Watch carefully because it needs to be stirred for even browning. You can even make two batches and freeze one.
There are a few steps in this recipe, but it’s worth it—really worth it. The secret? The marinade makes shrimp, seafood, or chicken super-moist. Make the marinade ahead, and store it in your refrigerator.
