Characteristics of Cuttlefish:
Identification characteristics of Cuttlefish.
Cuttlefish comes in various sizes and has an oval body shape. When freshly caught from the sea, the squid has a grayish-blue color with tiny salt and pepper spots on its skin. After being processed and cleaned, Cuttlefish will have an ivory white color and a shiny surface, which is very visually appealing.
Nutritional Value of Cuttlefish
In addition to its characteristic delicious taste, Cuttlefish also possesses strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are compounds that can counteract harmful molecules known as free radicals. If there are an excessive amount of free radicals in the body, they can damage cells and increase the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Some laboratory and animal studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of Cuttlefish are attributed to polysaccharides, which are long chains of sugar molecules linked together, capable of combating free radicals.
Consuming Cuttlefish may help prevent cancer. Laboratory studies have indicated that squid can reduce the size and spread of cancerous tumors. These anticancer properties are linked to the antioxidant characteristics of squid.
Specifically, in vitro studies have discovered that proteins and polysaccharides derived from Nang Squid can inhibit the growth of specific cancer cells, such as lung cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.
Furthermore, there are studies suggesting that polysaccharides from squid can protect against and counteract damage caused by chemotherapy drugs.
How to Prepare Nang Squid without Fishy Odor
Step 1: Remove the head and tentacles of the squid
First, hold the body of the squid with one hand. Simultaneously, gently pull the head of the squid outwards with the other hand. Then, carefully peel off the ink sac to avoid rupturing it and releasing ink. If the ink sac accidentally breaks, you can rinse it with clean water.
Step 2: Cut off the eyes and beak of the squid
Use a knife to cut off the squid’s eyes. For the beak, which is the hard, round mass in the center of the squid’s head, squeeze it with your fingers and remove it.
Step 3: Peel the squid’s skin
Next, use a knife to make a light cut along the body of the squid, starting from the head, creating a groove between the flesh and the skin. Then, hold the flesh of the squid with one hand and grip the skin with the other hand, pulling it upwards. Slowly peel off the skin until it is completely removed.
Step 4: Rinse thoroughly
Finally, you need to thoroughly rinse the head, innards, and body of the squid. After that, you can proceed with the next steps of cooking the squid into your desired dish.
Cooking with Stir-Fried Cuttlefish and Celery
Stir-fried Cuttlefish with celery is an amazing combination that brings a delicious and enticing dish. It is a simple and easy-to-make recipe that is packed with delightful flavors.
After buying the squid, clean and prepare it properly. Marinate it with spices and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then, sauté some fragrant garlic and add the squid. Cook until the squid becomes firm. Next, add the celery and continue stir-frying for about 3 more minutes. Finally, turn off the heat and enjoy your meal.
