Are you crazy for fried calamari like me? Then, you have to try these Baked paprika Calamari rings, a lighter and spicier version of this dish: delicious!
Furthermore, Baked paprika Calamari rings have another remarkable advantage: you have not to dirty and to stink out all your kitchen 😉 ! You simply have to season squids (after cleaning and cutting them) in a bowl, to put them in a roasting pan lined with greaseproof paper, to put the roasting pan in the oven…and in 20 minutes they will be ready for your lunch!
I like spicy food, and I used spicy paprika, but if you prefer softer flavours you can use the sweet one.
Let’s see how to prepare them 🙂
