Octopus

£4.95£23.80

Fresh Cornish Octopus has a delicious, creamy coloured flesh much enjoyed by gourmets. Its a good source of low fat protein and rich in vitamin B12. Delicious cooked very quickly seared on the barbecue or a hot griddle and great for slow cooked dishes such as Mediterranean fish stew. Unlike Squid which can be cooked very quickly from fresh, Octopus needs tenderising first before cooking quickly, the best way is to simmer in a pan of water for at least an hour until tender.

 

Price per 500g of whole Octopus (unprepared) £4.95

We can prepare your Octopus for you, in which case you’ll receive approximately 60% of the original weight.
