Pan fried calamari dusted in whole wheat flour.

Tip 2: coating with whole wheat flour gives a nice crumbly rustic golden finish to anything.

Dinner for 1, time from prep to chewing, roughly 15mins.

1T champagne vinegar (or any dry vinegar)
Lime juice to taste.
Some kosher salt for when searing.

    1. thanks! I could have used AP flour for a finer texture, but the whole wheat flour has a better texture if you’re going for something less predictable and the taste is a bit sweeter too. Thanks for stopping by Stefan!
