For Squid:

Clean and soak calamari in buttermilk for 2 hours before cooking. Drain well in a large mixing bowl. Dredge squid with flour until each ring separates easily from others. Put in sifter and shake off excess flour. Fry until golden brown. DO NOT OVERCOOK!

Sauce:

Start with 1 Tbsp butter over medium heat. When butter is melted, add peppers and tomatoes. Deglaze with lemon juice. Add remaining butter and scallions. Toss. Add calamari and toss. Serve.
