How to bake calamari

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Place the egg whites and ¼ cup water in a medium bowl and
whisk to combine. Spoon the cornflour and breadcrumbs into
two other separate medium bowls.

Toss the calamari rings in the cornflour, then the egg-white
mixture, then the breadcrumbs. Lay the prepared rings onto the
baking tray. Spray well with vegetable oil spray. Bake for
15–17 minutes, until golden.

Meanwhile, make the tartare sauce. Process the egg yolk,
vinegar and sugar in a food processor for 30 seconds, until
smooth. Add the yoghurt and process for 30 seconds.

Transfer to a small bowl and stir through the gherkin, capers and green onion. Serve with the calamari and a green salad.
