Description

Details

Cuttlefish is the shellfish with an internal cartilage famed for being Canary food, but it makes a super (affordable!) alternative for squid during the summer months when it is in short supply and often very expensive. Cuttlefish is suitable for various cooking methods, including raw consumption, and is a great low-fat source of protein. It's also packed with vitamin B12; which helps maintain healthy skin and hair. TIP - Most squid recipes will work well with cuttlefish.

Landed

Landed

Cuttlefish is landed in most Cornish ports and is caught in trawls and beam trawls as part of a mixed catch. A few years ago, it was not considered worth landing, now Newlyn lands large quantities of top quality cuttlefish.  It is also a good alternative to squid when that fish is not available or out of season. 

Storage & Preparation

Storage & Preparation

Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
