Calamari Steaks Parmigiano

DEIRDREJAYNE

"This recipe is almost like Chicken Parmigiano, but it uses calamari steaks, and is much quicker and easier to make. It is not baked, and the uniform texture of the steaks allows the breading to adhere nicely. Serve over your favorite pasta with extra sauce, if desired."

  1. Slice the calamari tubes open so they can lay flat. Rinse and pat dry; set aside. Mix the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese together in a pie tin or on a plate. Pour the milk into a separate dish. Dip the calamari steaks in milk, then press into the bread crumb mixture to coat.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Quickly add the steaks and cook until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side. They should be golden brown but be careful not to over cook or they will be tough.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add garlic and then spaghetti sauce to the pan. Top each steak with a slice of provolone cheese. Cover with a lid just until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.

If you like calamari, you'll like this recipe. Easy and tasty!

It was good, but needed a bit of zing. I threw some lemon and a bit of garlic into the pan, but that wasn't enough. I still liked it though. Will try it again.

I used this recipe, but made pork cutlets instead of calamari. They turned out great. The flavor was good and I followed one of the suggestions of placing the pork on top of the sauce instead ...

tooooo heavy ..will not try it again i would give it less then half a star

I'm only giving 2 stars because I may have done something wrong. I don't know what but maybe it was me. The breading just dissipated into the oil. It was a mess. Good thing calamari steaks a...

I used a beaten egg instead of the milk to dip it in; and panko instead of bread crumbs, making the crust much crispier. I thought it turned out great and will definitely make it again.
