The BEST Way To Reheat Calamari

If you’ve recently made (or ordered) a little too much calamari, you may be wondering how to reheat it.
Calamari is a delicate dish, and even more so after it’s been cooked. You have to find the right balance to ensure you don’t end up with a soggy, tough piece of battered squid. (Ergh).
I have personally experimented with several different calamari reheating methods, with the aim of finding the method that delivers the best crunch and the least tough bite.

Wire rack


  • 1 portion calamari
  • 1 spray olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 370°F (190°C) or 450°F (230°C) for frozen calamari.
  • Spread your calamari out on a wire rack*.
  • Spray the calamari rings with a light coating of oil (optional).
  • Put the calamari in the oven and heat for 10 minutes or until they’re piping hot.
  • Serve immediately.


* If you don’t have a wire rack, you can use a baking tray. But you’ll have to turn the calamari halfway through cooking to ensure the batter crisps up on both sides.
