This recipe for Air Fried Calamari is a delicious and healthier version than the deep-fried alternative. Thanks to the batter and flour method, you will end up with a perfectly golden crispy seafood treat.
Did you know that calamari is a very healthy seafood choice? It has high levels of Omega-3s, protein, vitamins B2 and B12, phosphorus, calcium, and zinc. Phosphorus and calcium are key building blocks of bones and teeth, while vitamin B12 has been found to recipe the risk of heart attack or stroke. These are just a few reasons to buy our freshly frozen calamari! Sizzlefish’s superior calamari is caught fresh in the North Atlantic and frozen at peak freshness. Our calamari has a light and buttery flavor that works beautifully in this recipe.
Let’s talk about this recipe, shall we? If you are intimidated by frying then the air fryer is a great place to start. It’s definitely an easier and healthier approach to the normal deep frying method. We decided to go with a batter and flour method to give the calamari that beautifully golden coating. Spraying the coated calamari with olive oil helps make that crust stay on while also helping it brown up beautifully. We served ours with lemon wedges and cocktail sauce.
