Slap Ya Mama Fried Calamari with Hot Pepper Rings & Sour Cream

Slap Ya Mama Fried Calamari with Hot Pepper Rings and Sour Cream
by Christine Adams

1 pound squid rings, rinsed
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama Original Cajun Seasoning
1 can of your favorite beer
flour for dredging
canola oil

Fill a heavy sauce pan with a few inches of oil. While the oil is heating, mix your dry ingredients, take a sip of your beer, and mix the rest into the dry ingredients until thick and frothy.  When it sticks to the spoon and just the excess drips off, you're ready to go.

Dredge the rings in the flour, shake off any excess and drop into the batter. Let any extra drip off and put into the hot oil. Fry for a minute or so, until golden brown.  If it gets brown to fast, just turn the heat down a little. Drain on paper towels or in a paper bag.  Keep warm in the oven, uncovered, this will keep them crispy, while you finish the rest.
