Premium Octopus Whole 1 kg.
Octopus is a weird-looking sea creature that many people don’t want to try just because it doesn’t look particularly tasty. It is an extremely popular part of Mediterranean cuisine and it is considered one of the delicacies. It is also very expensive in various restaurants. The biggest problem of eating octopus (besides its looks) is the fact that it needs to be prepared by someone who knows what he is doing. If you don’t follow the standard procedure, octopus meat will usually be tough to chew and not desirable at all. On the other hand, if you do it right, not only that you will enjoy its taste, but you will also know that you are eating healthy food.
