Tinned Octopus?

Answered on August 23, 2016

Is this a good thing to eat? I've been trying lots of new seafood recently and the tinned octopus looked like an interesting option for keeping around in my desk at work with my other snack-ish foods. I really liked the tinned oysters but trying them for $3.00 wasn't as much of a gamble as the octopus which costs three times as much. I've never had octopus but I like sea food in general: squid, shellfish, fish, raw and cooked.

So do you guys like tinned octopus? When I open it up, will it be a whole octopus or pieces of meat and tentacles? How do you like to eat it?

The sushi chef I know showed me how they slice the tentacles at a 45degree crosswise paper thin slice. Made the pod-sticky things look almost edible.

I've never had tinned octupus, but the sushi octopus is delicious. I think it's steamed at least in the US.

Man, I've never had tinned octopus! But fresh octopus is really nice. I liken it to a "meatier" version of squid. If you like squid you would definitely be down with the flavour.

It's delicious! I ate a tin of wild caught octopus from Spain. I got it at Grocery Outlet for 99 cents. I have no idea what the price is in regular grocery stores. Only problem with it is it's in soybean oil. Drained it all out first, but... it is soybean oil. I got another tin that has canola oil.... so I'm looking for some in olive oil. It's really good, much better than I thought it would be. Not as chewy or rubbery as I thought. Not fishy. This one has garlic and red peppers added for flavor. I'm really impressed. So, out to look for some without the bad oils. Yum.
