Preparation method

  • Clean the squid as described in the basic recipe.

  • Grind the fennel seeds in a mortar and mix with the salt, pepper, and ground coriander.
  • Prepare the tempura batter by mixing the tempura flour and Trisol in a bowl.
  • Now add the ice-cold water (tempura batter is allowed to have a few clumps).
  • Dredge the squid rings in the tempura flour and then immediately in the batter and deep-fry at 160°C until golden brown and crispy.
  • Drain on paper towels and season with a salt and spice mixture of your choice (e.g. with Japanese seven-spice blend).
