Black squid ink paella with squid and prawns

Regular price £10.50

Squid ink paella is a dish traditional to the city of Barcelona. Paella used to be cooked by fishermen using a small burner and a pan on the boat. Later on, the fishermen would use the squid ink found in the squid they caught to flavour the paella. Squid-ink has a very rich deep-sea flavour that adds a specific type of saltiness to the paella.
