Arroz Negro is a black rice dish made in the manner of a paella.
Tinta de calamar is the essential ingredient, imparting a rich
flavor and dark color to the rice. 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. Our squid
ink comes from cuttlefish, or sepia in Spanish, which has a
smooth, rich flavor and is known for its superior quality. It is
superior to the ink of other cephalopods which can be too fishy.
This 17.6 oz jar contains a large amount of squid ink, suitable
for cooking large quantities of arroz negro or for use in
restaurants. It is shelf stable until opened, and then should be
used within a week or two.
