Our whole octopus is sourced from safe, clean waters and has a delicate flavour similar to that of a scallop. The whole octopus is packed separately to the fixings in your freezer, which means it won’t lose its juices as you cook it, but fans a crunchy charred texture. This octopus is hand-picked by our expert fishermen for its superior quality.
What Does Octopus Taste Like?
Octopus is versatile and nutritious seafood. Once tenderized, it can be stir-fried, grilled or used in soups and salads. The texture of cooked octopus meat is slightly chewy with white, opaque colour. This frozen product comes packed whole in its juices and will require preparation before cooking. Our whole octopi are frozen at sea, making them fresher than those you would find in a supermarket. They are not chemically treated or washed before freezing, and they retain most of their natural nutrients.
The whole octopus is sustainably harvested from the local fishermen and comes from a nearby supplier. There is no difference in taste or texture between harvesting methods, but we have chosen to use a local supplier who uses proper techniques as laws restrict the fishing net type that must be used.
