I am a calamari lover !!! I begged Jeff for years to make this in his culinary classes but it took him 2 years to finally give it up. This is the best calamari you will ever eat and I am SO glad I can finally make it at home and impress friends and family. Thanks Jeff !!! When I cannot find calamari steaks, I buy a 10 oz box of Trader Joe's lightly breaded calamari rings and it is still awesome .. Enjoy !!!
