*RAW EGG WARNING

Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly-cooked eggs due to the slight risk of Salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly-refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.

FRIED CALAMARI:

In a large pot heat oil to 350 degrees. Next, mix together flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Coat the calamari rings in the flour and fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot with the caper mayonnaise.
