Fried Food

Posted on June 22, 2005 by Aun

This week’s Friday Food Fiesta on Flickr is on fried foods. In order to submit something both yummy and homemade, my fabulously sexy gourmand of a wife, S, whipped up a plate of calamari (fried squid) as well as some beer-battered flathead, served with a simple side salad. Truth be told, we both enjoyed the calamari better—the squid had been tossed in seasoned flour (salt and pepper) and then sifted to remove the excess flour. The beer-batter (from a recipe from Neil Perry’s new book, The Food I Love) was tasty but was also a tad heavy for our taste. It was, though, a great way to get rid of a can of Asahi that my brother had left in our house the last time he came over for a meal. Neither S nor I are beer lovers, so it was either a beer batter, a carbonnade (a la flamande), or this can was gonna be in our fridge forever.

    J: no worries. was making fun more than anything. although i did joke with S that in order to be as contrary to W's style, i should bring a half-bottle of laurent-perrier with me to your house on friday… a very Niles things to do. (anyway, S quickly and correctly scolded me…something like, "While we may not stock beer, they certainly stock very good wines!")
