I have been making my own Calamari Fritti for a few years now. I experimented on a whim one hot summers day when I was tasked with making a birthday dinner for my mother in-law. With only one day’s notice I whipped together what I felt to be an amazing meal. Everyone in my husband’s family loves calamari, and I figured why not try to make it for the dinner as a nice surprise appetizer! After doing quite a bit of recipe research online I had finally found what I felt to be the best recipe for Calamari Fritti out there.
I love the Smoked Chipotle Aioli dipping sauce that accompanies this dish. It’s spicy yet creamy and satisfies the taste-buds. Don’t get me wrong. I love dipping the rings of the fried squid into a tomato-basil sauce. But there is also something about an aioli sauce that just does it for me.
