Octopus - Portuguese, Frozen, 2/4, Wild (3lb avg)
The waters off Portugal are said to produce some of the finest tasting Octopuses. Frozen immediately for supreme freshness, you’ll enjoy their firm but tender meat that cooks up sweet, delicate and delicious. Cuttlefish and Calamari aficionados love these as well!
Region & Fishery
The Octopus will lose an arm to escape a predator with no worries. The arm will eventually grow back and be as good as new.
Thaw frozen Octopus overnight in your refrigerator. Cut tentacles and stew them with any number of accompaniments…onions, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, fresh basil or oregano… until tender. We also recommend grilling them whole, brushed with seasoned olive oil.
Healthy eaters will appreciate the Octopus as an excellent source of Vitamin E, Vitamin B-12, Niacin, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc and Copper.
