    A GREAT VALUE BOX FOR ANY SQUID LOVER

    All our squid is sourced from the Patagonian sea shelf in the cold Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Argentina. This squid species is desired the world over for its flavour and richness in all-important B Vitamins. The Patagonian longfin squid are very short-lived, surviving for only a year, but this makes the population very resilient with a low vulnerability to fishing pressure. Squid is commonly called by its Italian name Calamari.

    CONTENT

    Cleaned squid tubes and heads (3 x packs with approx. 900g each for a total of 2.7kg in your box)

  • Instructions

    Your Squid tubes and heads will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost (do not thaw under vacuum/pressure), simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.

    Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.

  • Eco rating

    Patagonian Longfin Squid is marked “of least concern” by the ICUN. Our squid is sourced from the Patagonian shelf where population levels are stable, and the squid fishing industry is actively managed with two populations assessments per fishing season. Harvesting is also governed by a harvest management plan.

          Really good quality produce

          In a time when it is difficult to always get good Calamari, this is a great purchase to always have in your freezer. Love that it is packed in 3 separate packets, but with a third of each variety in each pack. I use it in my seekos potjie that is a big favourite with my family

          Amazing product that is easy to use

          The convenience of the product is out of this world. Packaged for usability and even a noob like me could make an amazing meal from this. Thanks for the recipe suggestions as well.

          Squid lovers box - amazing!

          The squid is so fresh, I followed the recipe suggested on your website and it was amazing. The family said best calamari they have had! I kept it so simple with butter and garlic and it was delicious. Served it with risotto with asparagus and worked out perfectly.

          Quick Delicious & ready to GO

          Once you get it right, and that isn’t hard, Incomparable in cost and quality to 80% of the palaces that have calamari on the menu. Our fussy 5 year old eats these things off a skewer as fast as we can serve them. We keep a pack of these in the freezer and struggle to keep them there. Delicious and quick. Good for at least 4-6 People per pack X 3 packs in this box. Great value.

          Squid Lover's Box

          We've ordered this a number of times - very yummy in paella, Spanish rice, etc. Squid is always soft. 3 separate packings very handy and ideal.

          Squid

          I placed my order in the morning and received the fish just after midday. Fish packaged in polystyrene boxes with ice pack ensuring your fish arrives really fresh. Green fish offers a professional service.

          All good - Maybe one suggestion.....

          Hey, Order was all good, calamari was super tender, cool for 40-1min seconds, set aside let water drain out, then get to cooking with spices for another 1min! Excellent as Grilled Calamari With Chimichurri Sauce/Paste. Just one suggestion on the Squid box the three blocks are too big for two people, I would suggest making it six smaller blocks. Thanks! Will

          Calamari

          Calamari was delicious. I would prefer the portion size of the frozen calamari to be 500g. 900g is too much and ends up getting thrown away.

          Pan seared calamari

          This is the third time I have ordered calamari and Green fish delivers on its promise every time. I marinade in lemon juice, parsley, garlic and olive oil 1 hour before pan frying in the Weber. It is delicious. Thanks again Greenfish for your excellent service from ordering to delivery.

          Great Value & a treat for Braai & Fry

          Compare this cost to what you pay for an ordinary Calamari Salad starter. Get it right and these will blow that out the water at a fraction of the cost. The hoods we skewer - Lime Juice , Chilli flakes, liquid smoke - low over very high temp charcoal. Quick and Crazy good with a salad. Tentacles get battered and deep fried. These 3 packs provide at least 8 meals for a family of 4. 1 pack fed two families (4 adults 4 kids ) dinner braai and a lunch salad.
