Organise Breading Station: Set out 3 bowls of similar size. Add the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder to bowl 1. Whisk the 3 eggs together in bowl 2. Next, add the panko crumbs, ground paprika and tumeric to bowl 3.
Bread the Calamari Pieces: One at a time dip the rings in the flour and shake off excess, then dip into egg, then press into breadcrumbs on both sides. Set aside, laying flat on a wire rack covered in baking/parchment paper. Repeat this process until all calamari rings are breaded.
Preheat air fryer to 200 degrees c / 400 degrees F for around 3 minutes
Prepare to Air Fry: Add the first batch of calamari to the Air fryer laying flat in one layer, trying not to overlap pieces (this will ensure that the heat can flow evenly throughout the air fryer to cook properly)
Air Fry the Calamari in Batches: Spray the calamari rings liberally so that all pieces have received a good spray. Cook at 200C/400F for 5 minutes.
Repeat until all done: Remove from air fryer and set aside on a separate wire rack covered with baking/parchment paper. Repeat this process, cooking the squid in batches until its all been done.
