Recipe Endive and cuttlefish salad with orange jelly and black sauce – Italian Cuisine

  • 800 g 4 cuttlefish
  • 40 g sugar
  • 1 organic orange
  • 1 head of escarole
  • cardamom
  • milk
  • dry white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

For the recipe of the escarole and cuttlefish salad with orange jelly and black sauce, remove the orange caps (if they are beautiful, you can also keep them).
Cut the sliced ​​fruit, without peeling it, and collect everything in a saucepan with the sugar, 1 cardamom pod and 120 g of water.
Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, then add another 150 g of water and, after 15 minutes, another 50 g of water: by combining it a little at a time, evaporation is better controlled and prevents the cooking mixture from drying out too much. Cook for another 15 minutes.
Switch off and blend with the immersion blender, adding a pinch of salt: blend before it cools, to prevent the pectin present in the orange from starting to congeal, making it more difficult to bind it to the aqueous part in a homogeneous gelatin.
Leave then cool the gelatine obtained.
Wash the escarole and clean it by removing only the oxidized part of the stem, where it has been cut. Separate the heart from the outermost part, without "undoing" the clump.
Cook the outer part in boiling water, with a pinch of salt and 1/2 glass of milk: the milk will keep it a nice light color and will remove some of the bitterness. Boil it for 18-20 minutes, then drain it.
Clean cuttlefish: remove the central bone, remove the eyes and carefully recover the pockets of black.
Cut the bodies in three parts.
Crush the bags in a small bowl to obtain the black: dilute it with a spoonful of oil.
Roasted the cuttlefish (the bodies, the "wings" and the heads) in a very hot pan with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt, for 3 minutes.
Remove them from the pan, remove the remaining oil and deglaze the pan by pouring a splash of white wine: as it warms up, it will melt the caramelization of the fish. Add the black and dilute it, cooking everything for 2 minutes. You will get a sauce.
Cut the escarole cooked in 4 parts and place them on the plates. Arrange the roasted cuttlefish on top, then the raw escarole leaves. Complete the dish with the orange jelly and the black sauce.
To recover: all possible waste ingredients have been used: the orange peel is in the gelatin; the outer leaves and the more fibrous ribs of the escarole, boiled, complete the salad. The cuttlefish ink, mixed with oil and cooking juices, is used to prepare the accompanying sauce.
