    my new favorite food

    i always thought octopus was difficult to prepare. however i was wrong. it is very easy to cook and very versatile. boiled, skinned, marinated in oil and vinegar, then grilled quickly it is delicious. i also sauteed the boiled octo with fresh tomatoes, garlic,and onions. the perfect pasta sauce. i just bought 8 more. just remember to remove the skin just after boiling or it become difficult after it cools down. please know that my review is on the fancy octopus i bought from pure fresh seafood. i cannot say others sell the same quality product

    Octopus/Great

    I have heard that octopus was a pain to cook and would usually turn out like rubber. However, I saw many recipes that made it look simple. So I ordered 2 of the fancy Octopi. I followed the simple recipes from Pure Food Fish Market and I have to admit it has become one of my favorites. Boil for 1-2 hrs in water or a broth with vegetables, garlic and spices.Marinate in olive oil, garlic, greek spices( or just oregano)and and a little red wine vinegar, then grill over very high heat for just a few minutes and you have a great dish. If you can add a wood for smoke it only adds to the unique flavor. I had it for breakfast this morning with eggs. Easy to cook, inexpensive and great for diets!.
