These calamari steaks come out so tender you can break them with a fork. They are fast and easy to make and oh so good.

Ingredients

4
calamari steaks
1-2
fresh lemons
2 c
oil for frying

EGG DIP

4
eggs, beaten
1/2 c
sherry
1 tsp
oregano, dried
1 tsp
basil, dried
1 tsp
thyme, dried
1 tsp
parsley flakes
1/2 tsp
white pepper
1/2 tsp
salt

BREADING

1 1/2 c
unseasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c
parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp
oregano, dried
1 tsp
basil, dried
1 tsp
thyme, dried
1 tsp
parsley flakes
1/2 tsp
white pepper
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
onion powder
1 tsp
granulated garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix together ingredients for egg dip and put calamari steaks in to soak for 15-30 minutes
2
While steaks are soaking mix together breading ingredients. Start heating oil to shimmering. I use canola or vegetable and only enough to half cover the steaks. I do not completely cover in oil. Olive oil will throw the taste off completely. I speak from experience on that one.
3
Double Bread steaks, out of dip into breading, back into egg, back into breading.
4
Fry steaks until golden on one side then flip. About 2 1/2 minutes a side. DO NOT OVERCOOK or these will be like chewing rubber bands
5
Remove from oil, blot on paper towels.
6
Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon. (bottled is ok if you don't have fresh)

* Note: I served with a artichoke and will also have this recipe posted for your enjoyment
