Black Rice with Cuttlefish


Whenever you are buying squid (or cuttlefish), be sure to ask the fishmonger for the ink sac, too, since the black ink is a source of incredible flavor and is also commonly used to tint rice dishes like this one. To ensure that the squid ends up being tender, not tough, saute it briefly (preferably with some aromatics, as in this recipe), and then simmer gently--here, with rice, stock, and the ink.


1 shallots
1 leeks
1 clove garlic
1 cuttlefish
ground black pepper
180 grams short-grain rice
2 bags squid
700 milliliters fish stock


1Add the oil to a skillet on medium heat. Add the shallot, leek, and garlic and saute for about 3 minutes.
2Add the cuttlefish and saute for 5 minutes. Add salt and black pepper to taste.
3Add the rice and mix together. Saute for 2 minutes. Add the squid ink and stir well.
4Add the fish stock and simmer for up to 20 minutes on medium heat.
5Once the rice is cooked, remove from the heat and let sit about 5 minutes with a kitchen towel covering the skillet. Serve warm.
