Octopuses are a predatory invertebrate that can be found in all of the world’s oceans; however, they more commonly inhabit warmer, tropical waters. Many spend their life in deeper, darker waters near the ocean floor, but some species are pelagic, living near the water’s surface. As one of the larger breeds of cephalopod, they’re also characterised by their eight long tentacles, bulging eyes, and their ability to shoot clouds of dark ink.
In order to unlock its delicious flavour, an Octopus must be tenderised prior to cooking by simmering it on a low heat. Once pre-cooked, adding olive oil and seasoning is a simple way of enhancing the Octopus’s delicate flavour, particularly when grilled or stewed. Mediterranean flavours, such as lemon, fennel, parsley, chopped tomatoes and wine are also the complementary companions for this deep sea delicacy.
