When you order fish from Solander, you're getting the freshest fish possible!

Product Description

An underrated relation of squid and octopus and similar in taste, it is also known as the ink fish. Cuttlefish have a large head with a bone-like structure, small tentacles and contain copious amounts of black ink that is harvested for use in pasta and risotto.

Preparation: Like squid, cuttlefish must be cooked quickly at a high temperature (not giving the connective tissue enough time to toughen up) or slowly at a low temperature (giving enough time to break down the connective tissues completely).

For a quick method marinate your cuttlefish for a couple of hours – Asian flavours like soy, chilli and bashed coriander stalks works well – or go for a Mediterranean approach with lemon, garlic, basil and a good glug of olive oil. Flash-fry in a smoking hot pan or barbecue for 30 seconds on each side, then serve immediately with a squeeze of fresh citrus and a crunch of sea salt.

Availability: Available year round.

Fish for your health: Cuttlefish is low in total fat, high in protein and is a significant source of a number of essential vitamins and minerals.

Suggested wines: Try a hearty white or Rose.
