1
Cut open the cuttlefish and score the inside in a cross-hatch pattern. Slice it into irregular diamond shapes about 4cm wide. Pat the cuttlefish dry with kitchen paper and keep in the refrigerator until needed
2
To make the baharat, blend together all the spices in a spice grinder. Don't worry if you can't find all the ingredients here, just leave them out if you can't. Stored in an air tight container, this will keep for up to 4 weeks
  • 30g of allspice berries
  • 30g of cloves
  • 15g of mahlep, (dried cherry seeds, available in Turkish supermarkets)
  • 10g of nutmeg
  • 5g of mastic, (resin from the mastic tree, available in Turkish supermarkets)
3
Heat the measured olive oil in a small saucepan and add the onion. Cook over a medium heat until light golden brown. Remove from the heat and add 2 tbsp of the baharat
  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for frying
  • 1 onion, diced
4
Heat a large frying pan and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the cuttlefish and let it fry for at least 1 minute before moving it; you want the edges to caramelise. After that, move the fish around a little in the pan and cook for 1 more minute
5
Now add the cooked onion, peas and samphire and cook for 1 more minute, or until the samphire has just wilted. Remove the pan from the heat, add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and add a little more olive oil to make a dressing in the pan. Finally, stir in the herbs and serve
