A new addition to my menu. This was excellent. However, based on the recommendations of others I added 1/4 tsp garlic powder and I halved the salt to 1/2 tsp. Also, an added secret to tender calamari is to combine 1 cup whole milk and 1 tablespoon vinegar and let the calamari soak in this sour milk for 4 hours, then dump the sour milk and add 1 cup fresh whole milk and let set over night. I breaded my calamari wet in an old bread bag with the breading and shook. Because it was wet more breading stayed on the calamari which is why I had to half the salt. Do not bread the Calamari and let it sit for more than 5 minutes. I serve the calamari with a lemon wedge, marinara sauce and Aioli from this site, however, customers agree that the calamari by itself is excellent. Last thing, you only need to cook the calamari for 1 minute----Very Important to not over cook. Follow this and you will have some excellent calamari!
