Unnaceptable product

Even for the low standards of fish in the UK, this squid is unacceptable. Texture is chewing gum, smell and taste inexistent. Really amazed it has such good ratings. When you put true squid on a pan it will naturally shrink. This thing did nothing. It was fried inert, white, no aromas coming out from it. I wonder if its pre-cooked -its supposedly in the fresh section- or some sort of squid substitute. Will never buy again and certainly advice you to avoid this product. Ocado, please, check your providers.

We bought this 2 days ago. We bought this already in the past and was totally disgusting, but we decide to give it another try after reading all the positive reviews. I don't understand all those positive comments, this simply means that people here have never eaten squid in their life. The texture is plastic, the taste un existent, doesn't smell of anything and is too white, clear sign of some sorts of strange treatment as the previous customer reported. My suggestion is, avoid this product.

Poor poor squid

I am surprised to read positive comments about this squid but the squid i received definitely went through lots of chemical treatments when there was no fresh seafood scent whatsoever! Zero! It could be anything. Also, as someone already pointed out, the texture is nothing like a fresh squid! I eat squid once a week and love seafood and fish but would not recommend this squid to anyone. Poor quality and i wonder where does it come from and what treatment did they use for this poor squid.

real squid please

This is the only fresh squid available at Ocado. Always disappointed. Only buy it when I have to use squid in my recipe and don't have time to go to fish monsters. Can we have some real squid please!

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and, to the best of our knowledge, believe it is accurate you should note that the summary product information (in particular the "Other Information" section) may change between the time you place your order on the website and the time your order is delivered (in this regard we rely on our suppliers to tell us of any changes in a timely manner so we can update our website). For example, as all meat and fish products are naturally farmed, there may be occasions when due to weather conditions we may need to source from alternative approved sources (and hence the product origin may change). Therefore, if you do require the most up-to-date product information following delivery of your order, please ensure you check the website for details.
If the summary product information contains a link to another party's website for further information on the product, please note that Ocado has no control over and no liability for the contents of that website.
You also need to be aware that for those service counter goods where we offer additional preparation services (ie removal of the head and tail of a fish or for a rack of lamb to be cut into cutlets), the price will be calculated based on the weight of the whole fish before the head and tail have been removed and the lamb rack before it has been cut into cutlets, should you request this service. The receipt and product label you receive will also show the actual weight of the whole fish and/or lamb rack (before the head and tail of the fish has been removed and the lamb rack has been cut into cutlets).
You should note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included.
