I hope everyone is doing well and healthy. We are living in crazy times. What do you do to clear your mind? For me, I cook, and it helps a lot!
I bet some of you have been exploring new recipes since we have had to stay home all day. If you haven’t been, you should!!
Today I am making croquetas (croquettes), one of my favorite go-to appetizers. (Check out all my croqueta recipes; chicken, cod, ham and cheese, and more!) Today I made croquetas filled with squid. And not just squid. I also used the ink of the squid! BOOM! Mind-blowing right? Ok, maybe not mind-blowing, but these are unique and not something you usually come across. If you like seafood or enjoy squid, you will be pleasantly surprised. These croquetas are so, so good!
You can buy the ink online if you can’t find it locally. That’s what I did. In Spain, you would buy it at the seafood store, but in the U.S., I’ve never been able to find it fresh, so that the jar will do! Also, look for “cuttlefish ink.” You can use it to make other things, pasta, black rice, etc. Get creative!
Let's start making the croquetas!
