Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the oil is hot enough before frying the calamari to ensure a crispy texture.
  • You can customize the level of spiciness in the chili sauce by adjusting the amount of chili sauce and adding more or less honey.
  • Feel free to add other toppings like sliced jalapenos, chopped cilantro, or a squeeze of lime juice for extra flavor.
  • If you prefer a healthier option, you can also grill the calamari instead of frying them.

Storage and Serving

  • Calamari tacos are best served immediately to maintain their crispy texture.
  • If you have any leftovers, store the cooked calamari and toppings separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
  • Reheat the calamari in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes until warmed through.
  • When ready to serve, assemble the tacos with the reheated calamari and toppings.
