Ramón Peña Squids in Olive Oil, Gold Line


One of the best examples we’ve found of one of the simplest preparations possible. Squid, olive oil, salt. And the rest is a function of the quality of the initial ingredients and the technique of the producer. A tin that could star as the centerpiece of a seacuterie platter.

    I neglected to count or take a picture, but I believe there were 6 squid in the tin. Slightly larger than I expected. I ate these at first with crackers and espinaler sauce, then abandoned the crackers. The squid are stuffed with other squid bodies and some tentacles. They are quite tender with none of the rubberiness that other squid preparations have. Almost too tender. Delicious taste of the sea that pairs well with the sauce. I’ll try another squid tin next time, but these are fantastic and likely to be in rotation.

    The presentation of the squids in the can was very pretty as there were 6 pieces in this circular can. I ate one by itself to get a feel of the taste and texture, then I tore up and added the other five pieces onto some kewpie mayo yakisoba ramen for protein. If you want something that just shows the flavor of the squid with no interruptions, this is a good can. I like that they stuffed the rest of the squid bodies into the headpiece to maximize the amount of squid you get in the tin, due to the bodies being stuffed I feel like these would be pretty good fried, as they already come with olive oil, all you would need is some sort of seasoning to spice it up. I like how the squid was easy to tear apart by hand, it’s an easy bite and over all I would eventually get these again, but I only think I would treat myself to them once in a blue moon, and next time I will have other preparation plans besides just throwing them into ramen. They were fun to try though as I have heard a lot of good things about Ramón Peña.
