Spanish black rice recipe: even more delicious than paella

Trust me on this one

31w ago

Arroz negro, or Arroz NegrΓ©, is a Valencian and Catalan dish made with squid and rice, similar to seafood paella.

This shouldn't be confused with Black Rice, a type of rice grain with this natural dark colour. In this dish, it is obtained by using squid ink, the star of this recipe, that really helps to bring all the flavours together.

  • Sounds delicious but sadly we don't have the ingredients for that in my country. Squid ink, no way! πŸ˜’

    • Yeah, I wasn't sure if it was common outside the mediterranean... You could buy a fresh squid and extract it yourself but dont wear white clothes πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Even though I don't normally wear white clothes I somehow can't see myself struggling with a squid. I might talk to it gently, trying to convince it to give me some of its ink 😁

  • What is used for this is Cuttlefish's ink, but for some reason we call it tinta de calamar (squid ink) in Spain

    You can go to your fishmonger and ask if he/she can get you some as there is a bag in any unbleached cuttlefish or maybe buy it frozen as frozen ink is a thing, oh and it needs to be cooked properly and never add it to anything on the cold side as it's quite toxic if uncooked, but anyways I would try the fishmonger's option as any fishmonger that deals with fresh uncleaned cuttlefish should have ink bags or be able to get them
