There isn't a more tasty food that consists in it some kind of mollusk and it's more tasty than cuttlefish with sweet boiled greens (for instance spinach). This food reminds me of my mum's homemade food, whose every dish is considered to be food porn, so this dish is a always a win-win for me. For the record if you are allergic to cuttlefish, I pity you.
Ingredients (make for 2 servings)
:: 6 cleaned cuttlefish
:: 1.5 kg spinach
:: 1 large red onion & 3 scallions
:: 2 tablespoons of corn flour
:: 1 cup olive oil
:: salt and pepper
:: 1 lemon, for serving
Saute the chopped onion and the cuttlefish, until the cuttlefish get a nice golden shade, in a pot. Add 1 cup of water, close the lid and let them cook for 20 minutes. Then add 3 cups water, salt, pepper, coriander and ginger and leave them to boil for 15 more minutes. Mix half a cup of hot water with 2 tablespoons of cornflour and add this mixture in the pot, if you want a more porridge result. Add the chopped spinach, coriander and parsley in and let them 10 minutes to wilt slightly and be cooked with the cuttlefish. Then serve, with some freshly squeezed lemon juice.
