Organic Ocean's wild humboldt squid are caught in Peruvian waters using jigs. Jigging is a hook and line fishery that uses lures that are lowered to depths where the squid feed. This type of fishing has negligible bycatch making it one of the more sustainable squid fishing methods. Humboldt squid are also sometimes referred to as Jumbo squid or Jumbo Flying squid and are extremely fast growing with a life span of one to two years. Our wild humboldt squid steaks are cut from the body mantle, cleaned and then mechanically tenderized to enhance the dining experience. Chemical free, our steaks are low in calories and a delicious source of protein.
Grilled, baked, fried or deep fried, Organic Ocean Humboldt Squid Steaks are highly versatile on their own or as an ingredient in soups, salads, pasta dishes or stir fried. For best results, place the steaks on a plate and thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Check out our Chef Tips for some tasty recipe ideas.
