8 to 10 servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons cuttlefish ink
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1 pound (2 cups) Arborio rice
  • 6 cups fish stock
  • 2 pounds cleaned cuttlefish, cut into rings
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • In a large saute pan, over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onions and 1 tablespoon of the cuttlefish ink. Season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring. Saute until the onions are slightly soft, about 3 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the rice and saute for 2 minutes. Start to slowly add the stock, stirring constantly, allowing the stock to absorb after each addition. Season the cuttlefish with salt and pepper. To a hot saute pan, add olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the garlic, the remaining tablespoon of cuttlefish ink and the cuttlefish and saute for 5 minutes. Stir half of the cuttlefish into the risotto. Stir in the butter, cream, cheese and parsley and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Spoon the risotto in the center of each shallow bowl. Top with the remaining cuttlefish. Garnish with parsley.
