Salt and Pepper Calamari(Squid)

Salt and pepper calamari is a Chinese cuisine-inspired dish that’s so popular in Australia it might even be called one of Australia’s national dishes. The calamari, or squid in some cases, is covered in salt-and-pepper batter, then deep-fried to crispy perfection.

The dish is often prepared and served as a bar or pub snack, and it often comes garnished with garlic, fried chili, and spring onions.
