1 lb fresh calamari rings
3–4 large eggs, whisked
4 cups breadcrumbs
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tsp salt
3 tsp black pepper
2 tsp fresh chopped parsley
1–2 tsp onion powder/garlic powder
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat the air fryer to 400° F.
Whisk eggs and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Put flour in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, garlic/onion powder, and Old Bay seasoning.
Season breadcrumbs in a bowl with salt, pepper, and fresh chopped parsley.
Pat calamari rings dry with paper towels
Begin to coat each of the calamari rings in the breading; starting with flour mixture, then egg mixture, and finally breadcrumbs. Repeat until thoroughly coated.
Put calamari rings at the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure none of them overlap. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Repeat as many times as necessary.
Enjoy with some fresh cocktail sauce, marinara sauce, or any other dipping sauce, and some lemon wedges!
