DEAR SOS: My friends and I recently had a plate of calamari, served with a sauce, at Monsoon Cafe in Santa Monica. It was delicious. We wonder if you could get the recipe.
DEAR JOHN: Executive chef Hitoshi Hakamato was delighted to share this excellent calamari tempura served with curry mayonnaise. You can prepare the batter and sauce beforehand, leaving the frying for the last minute.
