Dip it into milk or water and dredge it with a combination of bread crumbs, flour or cornmeal as a base and add desired seasonings. Salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder go well with calamari. You also can sauté it with only oil or butter and spices and leaving the breading off for a healthier dish. - Step 5: Cook the calamari in the oil or butter for several minutes until they are opaque and tender. If you used a coating and cannot see the color, cook for five to seven minutes and cut into one of the rings to see if it is cooked all the way through. - Step 6: Remove the calamari from the pan with tongs or a slotted spoon and serve immediately.
