    1. 1
      Place the peanut oil in a 4 to 5-quart Dutch oven and place over medium-high heat. Heat oil until it reaches 375 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Rinse the squid thoroughly and pat dry. Cut the tentacles in half lengthwise and the tubes into 1/2-inch rings. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Place the egg, water and flour into a bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine.
    4. 4
      In small handfuls, dip the squid in the batter and shake off the excess.
    5. 5
      In batches, gently lower the squid into the hot oil. Cook for 1 minute. The squid will not be browned, but lightly golden in color.
    6. 6
      Remove the squid and transfer to a cooling rack turned upside down set over a newspaper-lined sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
    7. 7
      Repeat until all of the squid is cooked.
    8. 8
      Make sure to check the temperature of the oil before each batch to ensure it is 375 degrees F.
    9. 9
      Serve immediately.

      It kills met ot say this bc I am a HUGE "AB" fan. The cooking temp and time were perfection. The batter is really bland though. It just needs bit more seasoning though it it will be 5 stars.
