Cook quick for the best taste and texture -part of our sustainable fish range.
There's no denying it: a squid is a peculiar-looking creature. But its smooth texture and mild flavour make a delicious combo that's sure to evoke memories of summer days at the beach. There are two parts to a squid: the tube and the tentacles. The tube is most often seen cut into rings and deep fried as calamari, while the tentacles are a little bit firmer in texture. The secret to top-notch squid is all in the cooking. Overdo it and you will end up with a rubbery texture. So go easy and enjoy the seaside-scented flavour and satisfying bite.

Squid is a common feature in many international cuisines, though probably most famously in Italian and Greek dishes. It's found in large numbers from the North Sea to the Mediterranean and North African coast. Though it has a suggestion of the exotic about it, squid is plentiful off the coast of the UK, often coming in as bycatch by fishing boats looking for white fish. We source our squid from Devon-based fishing boats that use sustainable fishing methods to protect fish stocks and the ocean environment.

Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

There's really not much to beat hot, crispy calamari, doused in salt and pepper, drizzled with chill and lime or dipped in garlicky mayo. But it's not the only way to enjoy squid. For a real summery treat, try marinating both the tubes and tentacles in lime juice and garlic before quickly (very quickly!) searing it on the barbecue and serving it on top of an avocado salad. Or take your taste buds on a trip to India with some spicy squid pakora dipped in sweet mango chutney. It's also a great inclusion in mixed seafood pasta or rice dishes – adding a distinctive texture contrast.
