How to make Oven Baked Squid Healthy recipe

Oven baked squid is a quick and tasty appetizer or main course of fish: a simple recipe that will conquer everyone. 

Once cleaned and washed, the squid will be cut into rings, passed in the breadcrumbs and lemon zest; then baked in the oven with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. 

The final result will be squid crunchy on the outside and very tender on the inside, a light and tasty variant of the classic fried squid.

The appearance is that of a rather classic fried fish but already at the first bite you will realize how much lighter it will be!

Once oven baked squid are ready you can serve them as a main course, accompanied by fresh salad or sautéed vegetables.

You can enjoy them also as a delicious and appetizing appetizer.

Its preparation is very quick and easy. The oven baked squid recipe is not only very tasty, it is also ideal for people who want to keep in good health (as alternative to the fried squids, often heavy and easy to find everywhere). 

I prepare them very often both when I have guests, but also when I have little time, because as already mentioned it is a very fast recipe.
