Octopus has a mild sweet flavor, a slightly purplish hue, and a firm meaty texture when cooked properly.  Although it looks intimidating; Octopus is not fishy, chewy, or slimy, it is very mild, tender, and easily picks up the flavor of what it’s being cooked in, which makes it well suited for marinades.  The quick-cooking high heat methods of grilling, sautéing, or deep frying are best; as octopus can become tough if overcooked. 

  • Our Octopus is wild-caught in the waters of Portugal and immediately frozen to preserve extreme freshness.
  • The best octopus comes from Spain and Portugal (actually Portuguese octopus is the best)!
  • Octopuses are cephalopods closely related to squid, calamari, and cuttlefish.
  • Marinating before cooking will help tenderize the meat.
  • If you like calamari you will love octopus!
