So, what is squid ink?

Squid ink is a flavorful and unique ingredient often used in Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. The rich, dark coloring adds an intense depth of flavor to dishes such as pasta, risotto, and seafood soups. It has a subtle briny taste with a hint of sweetness and pairs well with garlic, lemon, and herbs like thyme and basil. Not only does it add striking visual appeal to dishes, but squid ink also contains antioxidants and minerals and has been associated with various health benefits. Its versatility makes it a favorite among chefs and food enthusiasts alike.
