Fried Calamari Rings with Butter and Paprika SauceOne of my favorite seafoods is calamari. It tastes great and cooks so quickly. Generally, I make it in grilled or fried form. Today's recipe is an ideal snack for cocktail parties though you can munch it anytime. The subtle and lightly flavored butter paprika sauce adds the required punch in this recipe. You're always invited to innovate and improve on the recipes. For example, this one can be made in a different way adding a flavored crispy batter on the calamari rings. If you do not prefer butter, you can replace it with light sour cream or olive oil. Serve these calamari rings with a spicy mint sauce bowl. You can also add some shrimps along with regular calamari rings. Let's quickly make this tasty recipe.
