Basic Octopus and Sepia Preparation

Our octopus and cuttlefish (also known as sepia) can be enjoyed in salads, appetizers, vegetable dishes, entrees and so much more. Visit this page often for great ideas on how to make your next meal one you’ll remember.

Basic Preparation: Octopus

For small octopus place in boiling water for 7-10 minutes.

For the larger octopus increase the boiling time to 30 minutes.

Once the boiling process is complete small octopus should be left in the pot for an additional 10 minutes. For large octopus let it soak for an additional 15 minutes.

Once ready the octopus just needs a squeeze of lemon and can be eaten right away.

For more flavors take the boiled octopus and marinate with extra virgin olive oil, white vinegar and pepper, and place on the grill. Once the octopus is charred on both sides remove from grill and serve immediately with sliced lemon on the side.

Octopus available sizes: 5-10 oz , 12-16 oz , 1-2lb, 2-4lb, 4-6lb and 6-8lb
