Clean and prepare the calamari and soak in buttermilk for 30 minutes or better for at least an hour.
Combine flour with the following seasonings (paprika, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cayenne powder and red pepper flakes).
Once you’ve finished soaking, dredge the calamari in seasoned flour, tossing evenly to coat.
Preheat frying oil to 350 degrees F. Carefully drop a handful of the calamari into the hot oil.
Cook until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.
Remove with slotted spoon and transfer to a paper lined baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining calamari.
Serve with lemon wedges.
