Quick and easy, easy, easy. … That’s what I like! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees while you cut up about a pound of calamari. Toss quickly with a splash of olive oil as well as a healthy amount of salt and pepper. You could also add some red pepper flakes for some heat.
In a separate bowl, add three minced garlic cloves and a handful of finely chopped parsley to 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs and mix well. Combine with the calamari and, using your hands, toss until it’s well coated.
Spread the calamari on a parchment-lined baking sheet, as well as any breadcrumb mixture at the bottom of the bowl and roast for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with a squeeze of lemon and don’t forget to transfer any calamari you’re not serving right away to a cold platter as it will overcook sitting on the hot baking sheet.
