From char-grilled to marinated and served with fresh salad there are many ways to enjoy this tasty seafood.
The octopus is a larger cephalopod cousin of the squid, with most of the meat in its eight tentacles. Octopi live longer than squid, making them tougher and therefore a bit more tricky to prepare. But, cooked well, octopus can be delicious.
Octopus is a low calorie, lean seafood, making it a good way to get protein in your diet without adding too much fat. Octopus is a very good source of iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and selenium, and provides several important vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin A and several B vitamins, as well as some omega-3 fatty acids.
