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.
