Product Information

 

There are many species of octopus and they all look pretty similar, but ours is slightly different (in a good way). They’re double suckered octopus from Portugal or Spain where this fish is revered and for good reason. Six to 12 inches in diameter (when in a ’clump’), a 1kg fish will feed up to four people. Our pack includes prep instructions and a simple recipe involving a lot of red wine. Alternatively, take a look at this erudite piece from The New York Times.
