The risotto with cuttlefish ink it is a first course that contains all the scent and flavor of the sea. It is a dish that I love, but it's not that easy to find at the restaurant, usually in the menus it is more obvious to find the classic seafood risotto that you like, but I usually prepare it myself at home. So I armed myself with cuttlefish and set to work to be able to eat one of my favorite risottos.
Before leaving you to the recipe, I give you two tips: cleaning the seppia be very careful not to break the bag with the cuttlefish ink before putting it in a small bowl, you would risk blowing the whole preparation and also keep a handful of seafood to add directly to the plates, otherwise the dish will be all black and therefore not very appealing to the eye;)


How to make squid ink risotto

Clean the cuttlefish starting to remove the bone.
Then remove the entrails, the eyes and the beak, then peel it.
Here you will find the complete guide. Finally, cut it into strips.

Gently remove the cuttlefish ink bag, then put it in a small bowl and get the black you will need for the preparation of your risotto.

In a large pan, sauté the chopped shallot in 50 grams of oil.
Add the cuttlefish, let it flavor a few minutes and then add the shrimps.
Cook for about 2 minutes over low heat, stirring.

Then add the rice and toast it for a couple of minutes, then blend it with the wine.

Continue cooking the rice by adding a ladle of broth at a time.

Halfway through cooking add the cuttlefish ink.
When there are a few minutes left to cook, add salt and pepper.
Turn off the heat and put some pecorino and the remaining 20 grams of oil.
Whisk and add fresh parsley at the end.

Your squid ink risotto is ready to be brought to the table.

10 ways to use squid ink in the kitchen

But if it's so beneficial and can be used in different recipes, why doesn't everyone use it? Out of laziness! The cuttlefish ink is extracted from the inside of the cuttlefish and has a high blotting power. For this reason, when cleaning the cuttlefish, they use disposable gloves or put the cuttlefish in the freezer for four hours (time needed for the bags to become semi-frozen) avoiding that the bags can break easily and get dirty everywhere.

The simplest alternative, if you don't have big claims, is to buy del cuttlefish ink already packaged and ready for use.

Whether fresh or packaged, here's how to use squid ink in the kitchen:

Squid ink arancini

The very famous Sicilian arancini can also be black. Fry the shallot in oil and then add the diced cuttlefish, later adding the rice to be toasted and deglaze with the wine. Continue cooking with a ladle at a time of vegetable broth, after five minutes add the black liquid of the cuttlefish and five minutes before the rice is ready, add the peas. Stir in a little butter and let everything cool well before forming the arancini which will be passed in beaten eggs, breadcrumbs and then fried in plenty of boiling oil.

Spaghetti with cuttlefish ink

Spaghetti is the best known combination to be made with sepia ink but also one of the simplest. After cleaning the cuttlefish, putting the bag aside, cut it into strips and brown it in a pan with garlic and oil. After a few minutes it will be blended with white wine and add the cuttlefish ink and a little salt. Once the spaghetti is cooked in boiling salted water, drained and put in a pan with the sauce, it will be necessary to mix everything and serve with fresh parsley.

Risotto with cuttlefish ink

A good dish of risotto with cuttlefish ink comes first from a chopped shallot and browned in oil in a pan. Once the cleaned and chopped cuttlefish has been added and seasoned, the shrimps are added and then the rice to be toasted and deglaze with the white wine. The cooking will proceed with a ladle of vegetable broth at a time and at the end add salt, pepper and chopped fresh parsley, stirring with pecorino cheese and a drizzle of raw extra virgin olive oil.

Pasta Al Nero Di Seppia (fresh, dried, with egg)

When we say: “Today pasta with cuttlefish ink” we don't always refer to its sauce. The cuttlefish ink can in fact be added as an ingredient in the preparation of pasta with water and flour or egg pasta, thus creating maltagliati to be used with seafood, ravioli to be stuffed with a filling of fish, spaghetti alla chitarra and etc.

potato gnocchi

The same goes for potato gnocchi. You can add black throughout the dough or put only half of it, in this way you get a dish with a mixed color (a little white and a little black) and with two slightly different flavors. If you want to follow this advice, remember to add a little more flour to the mixture with the squid ink and then cook the dark gnocchi for a few minutes before plunging even the white ones into boiling water.

Cuttlefish in black

Typical of Venetian cuisine, cuttlefish in black are a very tasty second course. To bring them to the table, they must be heated in garlic oil, to be lifted later, and add the cuttlefish which will be cooked for about 15 minutes. After having salted and peppered them, add the squid ink, blend everything with the wine and then add a little tomato sauce. After cooking for about 20 minutes, when the sauce has thickened, the cuttlefish will be served with chopped fresh parsley and perhaps accompanied with pieces of polenta.

If you put a little black in the bread dough that you usually make at home (and reduce a little salt), a nice dark one with a very delicate flavor will come out. By doing this you can prepare small sandwiches to be filled with salmon burgers or octopus carpaccio, the aesthetic aspect of this bread will be a success.

Beat the black in the egg white and dip the food into it to then turn it in the breadcrumbs. In this way you will have added additional flavor to your fish meatloaf or the breading of the fish that you have to fry in oil or bake in the oven.

If you want to add an extra touch of flavor to your fish dishes, you can sprinkle the recipes with a little black powder. To make it, you need to cook the black liquid in a pan with a little extra virgin olive oil, garlic, chilli and add a little tomato pulp and water. Transfer the cream obtained into a baking tray lined with parchment paper and dry at 80 ° C in ventilated mode. Once you have a dry sheet, use it to crumble it on your plates.


Heat some extra virgin olive oil with the garlic and add the black liquid, letting it rub for just a few minutes. Then turn off the heat, let it cool completely and add some white wine vinegar and simple oil to dress a vegetable side dish or a fish salad. The cooked part, on the other hand, the non-emulsified part, to be clear, can be used to brush a dish in which to serve risotto (perhaps with squid ink) or any other fish-based recipe.

Good. Beautiful your post, beautiful photos of your baby with his mouth smeared with black sauce. and congratulations for the recipe, as a good Venetian I read it calmly, you know for us the rice with squid ink is sacred, and it is perfect.

The process is like cooking in the pot, except you don't have to check if it burns. does it all by itself! a hug to you too!:-)
