This is definitely a old family tradition of mine as well to make Calamari and it is always a winner. It takes very little time to make and it could be used as a meal or an appetizer. WONDERFUL recipe!!!

This was the worst Calamari I've ever had. There was no taste at all and they were loaded with oil and the flour was just oo heavy. I would never make this again

I am from Spain, where you find this dish in every restaurant as "Calamares a la Romana", the most simple yet delicious way to serve calamari. Drizzle with some lemon juice before eating, wonderful!
