This Keto Salt and Pepper Squid recipe makes 4 serves. 1 serving is half a squid tube, which has 3g net carbs (we have factored in approximately 1 tablespoon of oil per serving from the fryer).

We recommend making your Keto Salt and Pepper Squid fresh. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days, but it can become rubbery when reheated.
