5 tb olive oil
1 tb fresh butter

EXECUTION

Add the cuttlefish and the cherry tomatoes and sauté for another 5 minutes. Sizzle with ouzo. When the alcohol is gone add the hot water. Let the cuttlefish cook until soft in low heat. Add the orzo and stir continually so that it does not stick on the pot. Add ink, salt and pepper to taste. If needed, add a little more hot water. When orzo is ready add the butter and serve with grated kefalograviera. You may garnish with fennel leaves
