Squid in ink

This recipe of squid in ink is very simple. The most complicated thing is to clean the squid, but that can be done in the fish market. Thanks to that, we only have to make the sauce and cook the squid in it.

The sauce, in this recipe, is very simple because, in addition to the ink, it only takes garlic, onion, white wine and a little flour to thicken it . Finally, a bit of chopped parsley is also added.

There are other recipes in which other ingredients such as tomatoes, peppers, etc. are also used. I like it that way.

The most traditional accompaniment for squid in its ink is white rice.
