Arroz Negro is a black rice dish made in the manner of a paella. Tinta de calamar is the essential ingredient, imparting a rich flavor and dark color to the rice.

Generally used in sauces and pasta as a coloring agent, squid ink can be used to make homemade squid ink pasta or to prepare 'chipirones en su tinta', a classic Spanish dish containing squid cooked in its own ink.

Our squid ink comes from cuttlefish, or sepia in Spanish, which has a smooth, rich flavor and is known for its superior quality. It is superior to the ink of other cephalopods which can be too fishy.

This 17.6 oz jar contains a large amount of squid ink, suitable for cooking large quantities of arroz negro or for use in restaurants. It is shelf stable until opened, and then should be used within a week or two.


Cuttlefish ink, water, salt, and stabilizer: sodium carboxymethyl cellulose.
