I love calamari, I love those crunchy and moreish squid rings you often get as a take away at the beach or at summer festivals. I love them so much but I certainly don't like frying them and leaving such a mess on the stove afterwards!
What I do is cooking them in the oven instead. It is quick, easy and they are much lighter than the fried version + just as tasty!
If you ask the fishmonger to clean the squid for you, you won't have to spend too much time preparing it.
Serve the rings with a green salad and squeeze plenty of lemon juice on them... what a treat!
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 15 minutes
Clean the squid (if it has not been already cleaned), wash it and slice it into rings; dry the rings thoroughly with a clean kitchen towel.
Put them in a bowl, sprinkle them with salt, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix well. Then add the breadcrumbs and stir well.
Line the breaded rings on a sheet of baking paper over a baking tray and cook them in the oven at 180C for about 15 minutes turning them halfway through the cooking. They should look nice and golden.
Serve with lemon wedges and ENJOY!
