Description

Baby Octopus are more tender than the larger ones, but just as scary looking with their eight purplish tentacles! Fresh is always better than frozen, but we must say these do cook up smooth with a firm, satisfying bite and full-bodied flavor – somewhat similar to Calamari.

Fun Fact

Many biologists consider Octopus to be the smartest of all invertebrates. In fact, they believe the Octopus has the same intelligence as a house cat. We’re not sure the cat would agree!

Product Preparation

Let frozen Octopus thaw overnight in the fridge, then cube the tentacles and simmer in marina sauce for pasta. You may also boil it, and cube the tentacles for a wonderful seafood salad. Or poach it for tenderizing, and briefly grill it whole for a lightly charred flavor.

Product Nutrition

Octopus has a good grip on nutrition as an excellent source of Vitamin E, Vitamin B-12, Niacin, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc and Copper.
