    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 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.

    GEAR USED : Demersal trawl

          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.

          Sizzling Hot!!!

          Stunning. A few pics of flash pan seared half pack (six portions in one box). Great stuff, you cannot go wrong on this as it is super easy to cook and remarkable to eat. Just get your recipe right as it does not need anything before cooking.

          Best in World!!!

          What a stunning taste from possibly the best squid fishing grounds in the world. Just cannot be beaten. Tender, sweet and super easy to prepare as good seafood never needs fuss - really, keep it simple! Faultless quality in my view - and I am extremely well fish travelled so aim for nothing but the best! Enjoy.

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

          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.
