  • About

This dish never fails to create a sensation when it is served, because it is so dramatic in appearance, being mysteriously black in colour. In fact, the squid ink tastes much less strange than it looks - the flavour is not actually very strong. These days, it is increasingly hard to find squid with its ink sac intact within the body of the fish. If you can’t find squid with its ink sac, you can buy the ink separately in small sachets, and this is perfectly fine to use for this recipe.
