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.
