Recipe: Seared cuttlefish, crunchy crumbs, sauteed cream and artichokes

Ingredients for 4 people

  • Cuttlefish 800 gr.
  • Artichokes n. 6

  • Parsley 30 gr.
  • White wine 100 gr.


Clean the artichokes and cook them upside down in a saucepan with salt, pepper, olive oil and white wine. Aside, lightly brown the celery, the carrot and the finely chopped onion, then use a blender to mix everything with the extra virgin olive oil.
