Cuttlefish with spinach

  • LIKE


  • 1/2 kilo spinach
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 kilo cuttlefish or octopus
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper


Clean the cuttlefish, remove the intestines, bones and ink bags. Chop and saute them with onion and olive oil, until slightly brown on all sides. Add 2 cups of water, reduce the temperature and simmer for about 45 minutes. Use a fork to check if cuttlefish is almost done. Clean and cut spinach in thick pieces and add into the pot. Add a little salt and pepper, stir and let simmer with the lid on for 20-25 minutes. Pour the lemon juice over the food and stir. Serve warm or slightly cold.
