If you’re looking for a quick, delicious appetizer to serve guests or even eat as a snack, then our air fryer calamari is definitely a must-try. While you can make your own calamari and dip it in batter before frying, we opted for pre-cooked frozen calamari, as squid is not an item that is readily available in landlocked East Tennessee.
Why Air Fryer Calamari?
The great news about this calamari is that it is quickly prepared in your air fryer, saving you valuable time in the kitchen that could be spent completing other tasks on your to-do list. Simply open the bag, toss the calamari rings into your air fryer basket, set the time, and forget about it. You have a delicious appetizer sure to impress your guests or family in under ten minutes, saving more than half the time it would take to prepare the same dish in the oven.
