Yeah I'll never throw a cuttlefish back, always good for a feed. I reckon they are nice but not as tasty as squid. Most people I know wont keep them as they can me hard and messy to clean. I find after a bit of practice it can be totally cleaned in less than 2 minutes.

I find my cuttlefish to be a bit too tender for me. I've heard a heap of people say its too tough but I find it the exact opposite, I can't get it to toughen up when cooking. I think its because I clean them really well and pull off all the membranes.

Yer thats why I never tried it before hand because people said its too tough,so that's why always try things on your own, after cooking it to soften the flesh i found it softer than squid I read to cook in a ragingly hot pan for 2-3 minutes, or stewed for the better part of two hours. .I reckon grilling would be nice too ;)I also LOVE octopus too.. ;D Did you guys find it sweeter tasting than squid, like a sweet taste to it..??
