Eating paleo doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite Italian foods. Growing up Italian-American I refuse to let paleo hinder my traditions. So... fried calamari it is!

  1. Cut the squid into 3/4 inch rings. Slice the peppers to create rings, too. Set aside.
  2. Whisk the egg with 1 tbsp water. Set aside.
  3. On a stove-top pan heat 1/2 the amount of tallow on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, it's time to dip the sliced peppers and squid in the egg wash. This is actually option, depending on how much you like coating on your squid. After a quick dip, coat in the flour mixture. a light coating will do. Vigorously shake off the extra flour before adding to the hot tallow. Test ONE pepper or squid. This will help you judge whether or not the fat is too hot.
  4. Fry the calamari first. Drain and filter the fat, then add the second half of the fat and fry the remaining peppers.
  5. Salt the food immediately after frying.
  6. squeeze lemon on top and serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
