ISO: Squid Ink

1sweetpea May 3, 2010 05:27 AM

I'd like to make squid ink risotto and homemade squid ink soba/pasta. Is it possible to buy squid ink that's already been extracted from the squids? I once tried to make use of the ink from a squid I purchased, but there wasn't enough. I'd have needed several squid to make a really black risotto or colour pasta. I'll be in Toronto this weekend and would like to pick some up. I'm thinking that Pisces might have it, or Bill's Lobsters. Any ideas?

    I saw it at Rowe Farms on Roncesvalles. That was a while ago so if you don't live in the area, give them a call first.

      I have seen it at St Lawrence Market. I believe that it was at Seafront Fish Market (You can give them a ring 416-365-0086).
