Crni Rizot

This savory dish is Croatia’s version of squid ink risotto. Influenced by neighboring Italy, Croatia’s version of this deep, dark and rich dish is very similar to the Italian version, with chewy and soft arborio rice, tender cuttlefish, squid or octopus, and lots of olive oil, lemon and parsley for garnish. It’s best paired with a glass of red wine to stand up to the rich flavor from the ink.
