Preheat oil in a heavy, deep frying pan or pot. Oil should be heated to 180 degrees C.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, salt, oregano and black pepper. Dredge squid rings in the flour and spice mixture.
Fry the squid rings for 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown. Try not to overcook the squid, otherwise it will be very chewy. Drain on kitchen towels and serve with lemon wedges.
