Buttermilk-Battered Calamari
Amazing recipe! We took advice from another rating and soaked the calamari for two hours in the buttermilk. I added paprika and salt and pepper to the oregano in the flour, and garnished with parsley when it was done frying. Better than any restaurant calamari we've ever had. We will be making this again and again!
