cuttlefish at a fish market or restaurant?

Madrid | Mar 1, 2012 01:58 PM

The recent thread on shrimp and grits at Neptune had me going to the web menu posted where I didn't see the shrimp and grits but did see cuttlefish. Opinionatedchef was just there and wrote in the thread that cuttlefish wasn't on the menu at the restaurant.

As I wrote in that thread, I last had cuttlefish in Spain in 1984, in its own ink, and it was one of the most memorable dishes I've ever had. Haven't been back to Spain since, I'm sad to say, but really yearning for cuttlefish. Anyone seen it in a fish market or restaurant?

I know it's also popular and available in Asia as well as Spain/Greece/Venice, so maybe it can be purchased frozen from Asian markets. i'm guessing if it could be purchased in the Boston area, it would have been previously frozen. I haven't been to H-Mart but some of the frozen items I've seen in Chinatown seem far worse for the wear in the freezers. Any good experiences with such purchases to report? thanks.
