About the product:
Squid ink is created from cuttlefish caught fresh from the Atlantic Ocean surrounding the beautiful Basque Country. Cuttlefish is a type of sepia, a relative of the squid, but has long been hailed as having more pristine ink that is better for cooking due to its rich, non-fishy flavor.
Generally used in sauces and pasta as a coloring agent, squid ink can be used to make homemade squid ink pasta or to prepare 'chipirones en su tinta', a classic Spanish dish containing squid cooked in its own ink.
