    1. 1
      Prepare the squid, rinse them, and drain in a colander for 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Deep-fry them as long as the oil is not too hot (about 350 grades F/ 80 grades C is the right temperature).
    3. 3
      Put the flour with salt in a plate, mix well and add half of the pieces of squid, but leave the tentacles for the end.
    4. 4
      Turn them in the flour, then lift a few pieces up at a time, shake excess flour off and drop them in the hot oil.
    5. 5
      When they turn a nice golden color lift them out with a slotted spoon.
    6. 6
      At the end sprinkle the lemon juice all over, some oregano, and serve immediately.
    7. 7
      These squid should always be fried just before they are to be eaten and should not be re-fried or re-heated!

      after frying-put back in pan, steam squid in vingar--I like this cold or hot. The vingar takes the fishy taste out, that is how my gandmother taught-they were from the island just off from Greece
