For the cuttlefish stock:

  • Prepare a fumet with cuttlefish previously browned in a pan.

For the rice:

  • Chop and fry the vegetables with the cuttlefish cubes until they are tender.
  • Prepare the rice in two rounds.
  • Soak gradually with the fumet.
  • Boil for 10 minutes while stirring.
  • Spread the rice on a tray that has previously been in the blast chiller to cool it as quickly as possible.

For the cuttlefish noodles:

  • Clean the cuttlefish.
  • Cut into 6 or 8 squares of the same size.
  • Stack the squares in an orderly way, one over the other, making blocks of 6 or 8 parts.
  • Cover the blocks with cling film carefully so they don’t break them and freeze them.
  • Once frozen, remove the plastic and cut into thin layers from the lateral of the block, with the cutting machine to obtain strips that are noodle shaped.
  • Vacuum the cuttlefish noodles seasoned and with virgin olive oil and chopped parsley. Set aside.

For the decoration:


  • Place the rice and the stock in a pan. Stir while cooking.
  • Adjust to taste and add a drop of virgin olive oil.
  • Vacuum the noodles at 65 ºC for 1, 5 minutes.
  • Plate up the rice in a deep plate.
  • Add the noodles on top.
  • Decorate with chopped chives and chive oil.


  • The stock must have a lot of cuttlefish to be well concentrated.
  • For the chive oil, make the same steps of the parsley sauce, but changing parsley for chives.
