Our whole large octopus are imported from specialist octopus suppliers in the Ivory Coast. Each octopus is approximately 30cm in length and 2kg to 2.5kg in weight. In terms of taste, octopus has a comparable taste to squid or calamari, although it is more tender than calamari. When cooked correctly, it should be moist and light. Depending on its seasoning, raw octopus takes on a subtle, nutty, sweet and salty flavour. There are a number of ways to cook octopus such as frying, skewering or boiling.
