Baby Octopus 1kg



Baby Octopus looks visually stunning when cooked. Purple-tinged arms curl and twist into an eye-catching swirl that looks more like a sculpture in an art museum than a meal on a plate! They are soft and chewy with a pronounced, meaty seafood flavour. It’s usually suggested to cook them at a relatively low temperature so that they remain chewy and don’t toughen up or dry out.
