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.

How to Make Parmesan Calamari Steaks

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
