Herb Fried Squid or Octopus

2 c Uncooked Squid Rings
2 Eggs, Well Beaten
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 1/2 c Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4 ts Dried Oregano
1/2 ts Dried Basil
1/2 ts Dried Thyme
1 1/2 tb Parmesan Cheese, Grated
Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges


Use 2 cups squid rings and tenacles, or octopus, or combination of both, cut into bite-sized pieces. Season the beaten eggs well with black pepper. In another bowl, mix bread crumbs, herbs and cheese. Dip each piece of squid or octopus in the egg mixture. Fry the seafood in well heated oil until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes for octopus, less for squid. Drain the seafood on paper towels and serve with lemon wedges.
