Add new and exciting dishes to your menu with this CenSea wild-caught octopus. Compared to squid, octopus has a more tender, buttery texture and a milder, slightly sweeter taste when cooked that readily takes on the flavors of its seasonings. The term baby octopus is used for several species of smaller octopi that are actually fully-grown adults. Just like regular octopus, baby octopus can be baked, grilled, pan fried or seared, or boiled, making it a versatile addition to your menu! Use it to create baby octopus salad with fresh garlic, lemon, and parsley, or marinate in an herbed olive oil and balsamic vinegar marinade and serve as a part of a cheese board paired with prosciutto, fig, cherry tomatoes, grapes, goat cheese, and fresh baguette slices. It's also great for making regional favorites like linguine alla Luciana from Naples, Italy or polpi in umido from southern Italy.
The octopus are wild-caught off the coastal waters of Vietnam to ensure high-quality flavor. Each octopus has its ink, beak, and eyes removed, is gutted, and thoroughly cleaned and washed. Then it is Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) to best preserve its freshness, as well as to prevent large ice crystals, or blocks, from forming. This allows you to easily thaw only the octopus you need for your meals. Not only is octopus a delicious addition to your buffet line, catered event, or seafood restaurant, it is also rich in lean protein and key vitamins and minerals.
