 Cuttlefish 墨斗

Cuttlefish from Pontian has a hint of sweet taste in its savoury flavour that is unique and cannot be found elsewhere. It is often confused with Squid (Sotong) and Bigfin Reef Squid (Sotong Daun). In fact, Cuttlefish and Bigfin Reef Squid both have a firmer texture than Squid. It is mild in flavour and suitable for stir-fry or deep-fry. Cuttlefish is high in protein and recent scientific research revealed that is helps decrease bad cholesterol (LDL) intake! 笨珍野生的墨斗有别于来自其他海域的墨斗,它的口味更加清甜。许多人常常会与把墨斗,苏东和青目混淆。其实,墨斗和青目的口感比苏东来得结实。墨斗的味道偏清淡,适合煎炒或油炸。墨斗富含优质蛋白质,有些研究也表明,它能够有效地降低劣质蛋白的摄入。

How To Make: Fried Calamari


  • 1 lb cleaned calamari tubes cut into rings, and tentacles left whole
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or milk
  • vegetable or canola oil for deep frying
  • marinara sauce, lemon wedges, or aioli, for serving, optional


  • Place the calamari into a bowl with the lemon juice, and let sit for 30 minutes. This will tenderize the calamari.
  • Preheat frying oil to 375 degrees F, either in a deep fryer or a large cast iron pot, no more than 1/2 full.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the flour, cayenne, paprika, and salt. Add half of this mixture to another medium bowl. Place the buttermilk or milk in a third bowl. Place the three bowls on the counter in the following order: spiced flour, buttermilk, and spiced flour.
  • Remove the calamari from the lemon juice, then dredge each piece in the flour, shaking off any excess, then into the buttermilk, shaking off the excess, then back into the second bowl of flour. Repeat this process with all the calamari.
  • Fry the calamari in batches for about 2-3 minutes total, until golden brown. Then drain on a paper towel and immediately salt the calamari generously so the salt sticks. Serve with marinara sauce and lemon wedges, if desired. Enjoy!

How we package your order?

The vacuum sealed seafood products and frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel are packed in a polystyrene box, so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.

We seal the polystyrene box with packing tape and hand it to our cold chain logistic to deliver to you.

What should I do when my order arrives? 

Remove your seafood products as soon as possible from the box, refrigerate all fresh items and freeze all frozen goods until you are ready to prepare them for consumption.

How is your frozen seafood handled? What is your freezing process?

Our fish and shellfish are processed and immediately frozen in our -45°c blast freezer. No chemicals or preservatives are added during the freezing or production process on any of our seafood items.

What is a -45 Degree Freezer and how does it affect the seafood when defrosted?

Blast freezing seafood products at a lower temperature keeps the wall of the cell intact, ensuring that water from the inside does not exit. When defrosted, the quality, texture, and appearance will remain completely intact just as if it were a fresh product.  

What is the proper way to defrost frozen seafood products? 

If you have received frozen seafood and placed it in the freezer, remove these items from the freezer and store them in the refrigerator for at least one day before you plan to serve it. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the product to properly defrost. Do not rush the defrosting process as it can affect the flavor and texture of your seafood.  

Why are some seafood products unavailable from time-to-time?

The availability of seafood products depends upon the season, weather, and other conditions that can affect a catch or harvest. Additionally, the harvesting of many seafood products is regulated in order to maintain a sustainable supply.
