Baby squid stuffed with rice, peppers and tomato in salsa or in its ink is a Portuguese and Spanish delicacy. Canned squid from Galicia can be enjoyed straight from the tin with crusty bread or in pasta dishes, using the Galician baby squids’ rich and flavoursome ink as a sauce.
Ramón Peña’s stuffed calamares is produced using time-tested canning techniques and the best ingredients. Shellfish from Galicia is renowned for its quality across Spain and the rest of the world. Pepus diced giant squid and stuffed baby squids in their ink are a customer favourite, and for those who prefer a spiced sauce over ink there is Cântara’s Portuguese-style stuffed squid in salsa.
