In Sicily, the calamari fritti is a delight. You will not be able to step away from your plate until you have finished the last fried crumb flavored with salt, which is dusted on the calamari after they are fried because otherwise, they would lose their crunchiness. And Palermo, in my opinion, is the capital of Sicilian street food, not because Sicilian street food originates from there but because it is just better there. As Faber of tannur.foodblog says that the characteristics of street food come from the “Palermitanazzi.”

It would be best if you went around the city streets, through the alleys, and found the various “friggitorie,” typical trattorias with the typical products of the area.

Some excellent trattorias include “Trattoria da Pino” at the beginning of the “Borgo Vecchio” market in Sturzo Square.

Or at “Capo” Market you can find the “Trattoria Supra I Mura,” or in front of the Zisa castle “Stuzzicherie di Mare,” and many others….

Ingredients

Instructions

    • Clean the calamari, ensuring you do not break the sac because you must make rings from it.
    • Wash and dry them well with a paper towel.
    • Cut the squid into slices and leave the tentacles intact.
    • Flour the squid very well.
    • Heat plenty of oil in a pan. See if the oil is hot enough by putting a pinch of flour into the oil. If it starts to fry and crackle, then it’s hot enough. Be careful not to burn yourself.
    • Now, you can begin to fry the floured squid.
    • Cover the pan with a frying pan splatter screen because the squid will start to crackle.
    • As soon as they are golden, remove them from the pan and remove the excess oil. Put them in a serving dish with lemon wedges, and add salt and pepper to taste.
