Use It As You Would Squid

Cuttlefish Is Often Overlooked In Favour Of Squid, But Is Very Similar In Texture And Flavour As Well As Being More Affordable. Caught In Trawler Nets Alongside More In-Demand Fish Species, Cuttlefish Used To Be Thrown Back But Are Now Considered A Worthy Addition To The Dinner Table! The Main Body Of Cuttlefish Are Fabulous Cut Into Strips And Tempura Battered, But The Tentacles Are Slightly Tougher And Require A Longer Cook Time – Braising Into Stews Is A Good Idea. Chargrilling Fresh Cuttlefish Quickly On The Barbecue Would Make An Amazing Addition To An Afternoon Of Alfresco Dining – The Firm White Flesh Will Hold Smoky Flavour And Light Grill Marks Wonderfully.
