    ChefMarvelIris's Note:

    This is a very simple but delicious recipe for calamari steaks. Be careful though - they cook exceedingly fast. Make sure you have the rest of the meal ready and on the table before you cook the steaks.

      I made this tonight. Very, very good! I cut my calamari steak into strips (to make them an appetizer), used panko instead of Italian bread crumbs because I like them with the Mexican flair. I also used peanut oil to fry (non-GMO canola is too pricey for me) which didn't change the flavor (they are both mild oils). I made a dill dipping sauce with lime juice squeezed in it. I will be making this again!

      The recipe is ok but my husband and I found that a simple calamari recipe with just a few ingredients tastes so much better than this recipe which requires a bunch of ingredients and more work than necessary. Some salt, pepper, olive oil and Panko or Italian bread crumbs are sufficient to produce a delicious calamari steak meal.

      I made this last night and loved it! The flavor or the chili power and tabasco made it. I cooked in less oil.
