Crispy squid with garlic mayonnaise

I prefer to eat a massive amount of this, and nothing else, rather than have it more meanly as a starter. But it would happily stretch to four people, ready to dunk each crisp piece of squid into the garlic mayonnaise over pre-dinner drinks.

Worked perfectly, the squid was tender and crispy and delicious. I was really surprised at how yummy and easy this was. This was the first Nigella recipe I tried, and it made me an instant convert. Also great if you're having a grazing meal together with some salads and dips for those hot summer evenings.
