These belong to a group known as cephalopods meaning head footed ie tentacles come out of their head. They are molluscs and not technically fish. Both have ink sacs that they use as a form of defence which can be used as sauce in some recipes. Both plentiful in Jersey it is very underrated but growing in popularity.


Once prepared squid/cuttlefish can be cut into strips – tentacles as well and cooked for a very short time. A quick tip to tenderise the flesh is to soak them in milk for half an hour before cooking
