Breaded Squid, Herb Salad

Mike Reid

Ingredients:

Serves: 4

  • Vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 75g plain flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 medium squid, cleaned, quills and beaks removed, sliced into 0.5cm / ½ inch rings
  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 75g Japanese panko breadcrumbs
  • Assortment of fresh herbs, chervil, parsley, coriander, mint, chive flowers
  • 50ml Early Harvest Olive Oil
  • 3 lemons, cut in half,
  • 2 free-range egg yolks
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 200ml rapeseed oil or light olive oil

Method:

  1. For the roasted lemon mayonnaise, heat a griddle pan until hot and griddle the lemon halves, cut-side down, for one minute.
  2. Blend the egg yolks, vinegar and mustard into a food processor, then squeeze in the juice from one of the charred lemons and blend until well combined. While the motor is running, gradually add the oil. Continue until all the oil has been added and the mayonnaise has thickened. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  3. For the squid, dredge in flour, then egg and breadcrumbs. Fry until golden, only a few minutes to not overcook the squid. Drain on a paper towel.
  4. Dress the herbs in olive oil and serve alongside squid and mayonnaise
