The cuttlefish (also called sepia, because of the brown ink that it produces) is a relatively unknown species of fish. It is actually a molusc, just like the mussel and the oyster and lives in the North Sea, amongst other places. Its carapace, also called sea foam, is often encountered on our beaches.

Cuttlefish can also be boiled or fried in rings. Another way often practised, is, to braise the cuttlefish in its own ink. Like all inkfish, the cuttlefish has a somewhat tough flesh, but that will not stop the genuine gourmet from enjoying it!
