Make It Easy on Yourself With These Cooking Tips
When it comes to making calamari steaks, remember that you’re only going to have a few bites. That means you need to be careful when cooking them. Don’t place them on a pan that’s too big. You don’t want your calamari steaks to take up too much room or fall off the pan. Plus, the pan shouldn’t be too heavy or too flimsy. A well-balanced pan will be able to handle the load without breaking. The lid should also be on your pan. Lids can protect your calamari steaks from the direct heat of the pan, preventing them from drying out. When it comes to adding flavor to calamari steaks, the fish is usually the best place to add flavor. However, it’s important to make sure the fish isn’t raw. You can add a sprinkle of salt or pepper to the calamari steaks, but be careful not to add too much. This will add flavor, but it can also make the calamari steaks a little too salty. Don’t use more than one seasoning.
