Calmar a la romana
The Illex argentinus squid is a cephalopod also called Argentinian red squid or calmar. The tentacles and arms are under the head and mantle, and its colors present brown to purple tones.
It is caught throughout the year in the South-Western Atlantic ocean (FAO zone 41), using trawls or jigs (multi-hooks lines).
It is present in waters of Brasil, Uruguay, Argentina and Falkland islands; and it is the principal cephalopod species exploited in that region where it has a major role in the ecosystem.
We offer it as rings made from squid tubes.
It can be appreciated as snacks, appetizers, or fried.
