GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT SQUID

Squid and octopus are among the absolute delicacies among seafood. Their exceptional consistency and first-class, intense taste make them favorites among all gourmets, especially among friends of Mediterranean cuisine. You can prepare them in different ways. Whether boiled, fried, grilled or fried. The delicacies always impress with their firm, elastic flesh and their fine, sweet aroma. Nevertheless, they tolerate generous seasoning such as chilli and garlic, as well as parsley or savory. You receive our squid products frozen. They are flash-frozen immediately after processing, which preserves their first-class taste. They are then permanently kept at temperatures well below freezing until they are delivered to your home. This means we can guarantee the unique quality of these products.
