Puntillitas are a type of baby squid which is quickly fried in a special flour and served in tapas bars all over Andalucía. The name is a diminutive of the word punta, which means point due to the pointy shape of this tiny squid. The secret to perfectly fried puntillitas is to work quickly when preparing them and frying them. The oil needs to be hot, so the flour seals itself all around the squid and doesn’t start to soak the oil and become greasy.
