Product Information


There are many species of octopus and they all look pretty similar to the unititated. We confess we are hardly experts ourselves, but we know a few people who are. Our suppliers in Portugal or Spain take their octopus VERY SERIOUSLY and golly they charge a lot for it. But it seems to keep you happy (especially if you have a nice Latin accent.). These are 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.
