Deep Fried Calamari

6 Squid; cleaned and bodies cut into rings
150 ml Single cream; (5fl oz)
3 Egg yolks
2 tb Freshly grated parmesan
2 tb Plain flour
1 Garlic clove; crushed
1 ts Dried oregano
Oil for deep-frying
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pour the cream into a large bowl and set in the egg yolks, cheese, flour, garlic and oregano to make a smooth batter. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

Heat enough oil in a deep pan for deep-frying. When hot enough the oil should be 160-180 degrees C (325-350 degrees F); a piece of bread dropped in the oil will sizzle and become golden brown in 30 seconds. Dip the squid rings and tentacles into the batter, one at a time and put into the oil.

Fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve immediately, sprinkled with salt.

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.
