OCTOPUS- WHOLE, WILD CAUGHT, SPAINRegular price $29.99
Frozen Whole, Wild Caught, Spanish Octopus.
(2.5-3.5 lbs.) per tray.
Unlike squid, octopus must be cooked a long time to become tender. Common preparations call for simmering the meat in tomato-based stews or slow, long cooking in a wine sauce. Before using in a recipe, the meat is boiled for 30 minutes to an hour to tenderize. To grill pre-cooked octopus, brush large-cut pieces with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic and oregano. Grill quickly over a hot charcoal fire, until slightly crisp.
