Dirty Squid

Price in £


Not to be confused with the unwashed squid as it is a different species, as can clearly be seen when defrosted for use. It is naturally of a darker brown appearance than the unwashed squid, with a different stronger scent. It oozes dark ink and the juices are thicker and greasier to the touch, making it very attractive to a large range of fish species.
