Fried Calamari in R.I.

Frank Terranova | Sep 5, 2009 10:14 AM

One thing in R.I. we have some great fresh squid caught in R.I. waters. Yet I cannot find out who came up with the hot vinegar peppers garlic on hot crisp squid. All you can taste is vinegar and peppers. Only in R.I. can they ruin fresh seafood like that. All over Italy they serve it with just fresh lemon and in some cases a little marinaria sauce. Once I went to Capitol Grill, someone in the party ordered it it was pricy but that wasnt the point. Out came this fried mass glued together and it floated in a vinegar solution. Approx 2 pounds of it we could have fed some poor homeless people. Seems like the Hot Weiner still rules in R.I. Thank got they have not ruined it.
