    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.

    CONTENT

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

  • Instructions

    Your box 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.

  • Sustainability

    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.

    GEAR USED : Demersal trawl

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Cajun Pan Fired Calamari

    The Fishwife shares a recipe with delicious French-American flavours perfect for these tubes and heads. You will need:

    • 1kg Squid Tubes and Tentacles (cleaned)
    • Butter
    • Garlic
    • Cajun Spice
    • Salt & pepper
    • Lemon or Lemon Juice
    • Sushi Mayonnaise or tartar sauce

    Preparation:

    1. Heat a dry pan on the stove at high heat.
    2. Pan fry the calamari for approx. a minute or two to allow it to release any excess water.
    3. Take the calamari off the heat, drain in a colander, and set aside.
    4. Pop a good helping of butter into your clean pan.
    5. Add a good helping of garlic.
    6. Throw the dry calamari back into the pan.
    7. Add some Cajun spice and salt & pepper.
    8. Fry in the spices for approx. 3-5 minutes.

          Frozen calamari

          Crunchy and sweet flavor. Tasted fresh even though defrosted from frozen. Great to NOT have to clean them myself.

          Local is lekker.

          Super stoked to be able to support local and sustainable with the added bonus of getting super fresh fish (squid). Had my girlfriend over last night and made the classic calamari and chips and it was one of the most enjoyable meals we've shared.

          Beautiful squid

          I recently purchased the Squid Lover Box, which arrives in 3 frozen 900g packets of squid. The separate packaging is convenient. The squid is beautifully cleaned and delicious. Definitely recommended.

          Top quality and service

          I ordered a Squid Lover Box and a Live box Black Mussels. They arrived on the following morning to Paarl. My guests were surprised with the top quality and freshness. I am a very satisfied client and will order it regularly. Thank you for the good service and the immaculate quality!

          Fresh and fast. Excellent experience

          Ordered a little after 11 and package arrived before 3pm...wonderful quality. The tubes, when defrosted were light and soft. I made the best salt and pepper squid and still have two delicious packs in the freezer for another day. Brilliant experience.

          Above and beyond

          Exceeded my expectations by miles. From my panicked, 'I need it today' phone call where I was gently taken through the online purchasing process (dead eady) to delivery at my home less than 90 minutes later. I am beyond impressed and completely delighted. Oh and the squid was exceptional too.

          Squid Box

          We ordered before 11am and received delivery the same day. The packs are easy to thaw in some warm water and contain a good portion of of tubes and heads, probably enough in each pack for 3 to 4 Adults as a main. The calamari turned out great and we can't wait to cook the next pack. Some of the tubes contained a bit of sand but that was easily washed out before cooking.

          This box is amazing - even I can make calamari now. Thanks also to The Fish Wife for the tips and recipes on how to cook it. My family keep asking when I am making again.

          Incredible quality

          The oysters were delicious, nice and firm and great flavour. The baby quid was incredibly soft and tender. The tuna was fresh and tasty - I didn’t bother cooking it as it was so fresh I used it in ceviche and sashimi.
