Both octopus and squid are high in protein and very low in fat. Octopus supplies an impressive range of vitamins and minerals, including a large quantity of iron, as well as lots of niacin. Squid also offers valuable amounts of niacin, as well as phosphorus.
Squid is very high in cholesterol but because it does not contain much fat, the consumption of squid will have no bearing on the level of cholesterol in your blood.
This recipe worked well. Very tender & tasty. Some may like extra chilli, or a dipping sauce as an extra. - 28 Jan 2014
