Raw squid rings
The Dosidicus gigas squid is a cephalopod also called giant squid. The tentacles and arms are under the head and mantle, and its changing pigments allow it to hide.
Its body can reach a length of 4 meters and weights 100Kg.
It is caught throughout the year in the Pacific ocean (FAO zone 87), using jigs that feature phosphorescent hooks lines (for nocturnal catch).
Its treatment with citric acid gives it a tender texture.
We offer it as rings made from its mantle.
It can be appreciated in ready meals, seafood cocktails or paella.
