Make the Slaw First: chop all 4 ingredients and place into a mixing bowl
Make the Dressing next: Add the dressing ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk together until combined. Add one tablespoon of dressing to the slaw and mix in.
Heat the Oil: Place a medium sized pan with sides onto the stove. Add the oil and set to medium high heat.
Prepare the Calamari: Cut the calamari tubes into 1cm strips so that you end up with rounds.
In a new mixing bowl, place the flour, cornstarch, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, dried parsley and panko breadcrumbs. Mix together with a spoon.
Crack the 2 eggs into another bowl and whisk with a fork until mixed together and runny.
Add the squid tubes to the egg wash, then take out one by one and place into the flour/crumb mix. Shake off excess and set aside on a plate. Repeat until all calamari have been dipped into egg wash first and then flour/crumb mix.
Shallow fry the calamari in batches for approx. 2 mins each or until golden. It will cook very quickly, and if overcooked it will become rubbery and tough.
Drain calamari on absorbent towel to remove any excess oil.
1Prepare Soft Tacos: Heat a new (cleapan on the stove top on high heat. Add the soft tacos one by one to heat and get a little colour on. (Alternatively if you have a grill pan that works great too). Repeat until all tacos are done. Wrap in a tea towel or foil until needed.
1Assemble Taco: Place taco in one hand and spoon a little sauce on bottom, followed by slaw, calamari, more sauce , a drizzle of lime and coriander/cilantro.
