Cucumber Sauce


  1. In a deep fryer, preheat the oil to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. In a small bowl, combine all the cucumber sauce ingredients. Refrigerate.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the beer, 250 ml (1 cup) of flour, oregano, salt and pepper until the batter is smooth. Set aside.
  4. In a plate, combine the remaining flour and cracker crumbs. Set aside.
  5. Rinse and pat the calamari dry. Cut the bodies into 1-cm (1/2-inch) thick rings. Toss lightly, a few pieces at a time, in the flour mixture. Shake off any excess. Dip the calamari rings in the batter. Dredge again in the flour mixture.
  6. Fry the calamari for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
  7. Serve with the cucumber sauce and lemon wedges.
