Clean Octopus Hands |Frozen Box | Wild caught
PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR…
Our octopuses come from the cold waters off Cape Point, where they are either caught as bycatch from demersal trawling or on longlines. Contrary to their squishy reputation octopuses are incredibly tough and resilient animals. They live short lives, grow quickly and can adapt to temperature and environmental changes with ease. This means that while many fish populations are on the decline these cephalopods are increasing. This box contains octopus’ hands (the tentacles complete with suckers). These hands have a salty flavour and a soft chewy texture that makes them a favourite in seafood salads.
1x Octopus Hands Pack (approx. 0.85kg - 1kg per box)
*Can be 1 to 5 legs in a pack
Your Octopus hands will arrive frozen, simply store in your freezer (up to 3 months) and use at your leisure. It is best to remove product from packaging to defrost, simply place on a tray in your fridge and allow to thaw slowly.
Any special requests or instructions can be left in the NOTES section at the Checkout. Eg: Your doorbell does not work, you require a phone call before the order arrives, you would like the fillets / steaks vacuum packed seperately or cut into smaller portions etc.
Octopuses are fast growing with a short life span of 1 – 2 years. This property alone makes them a very sustainable catch. Because these animals are so elusive, it is incredibly difficult to get an accurate sense of their population levels. However, due to their resourcefulness, their populations have been shown to be incredibly resilient with a low vulnerability to fishing pressures.

Easy Octopus Braai
Did you know that octopus is great on the braai? Our partner site The Fishwife shows us how. You will need:
- 1 Greenfish octopus hands pack
- Olive Oil
- Crushed Garlic
- 1 Lemon
- Salt & pepper
- Fresh Parsley
- Place the octopus in a pot on the stove and cover with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 45 minutes.
- Remove the octopus from the pot and place into a dish, drizzle with olive oil, add some crushed garlic and a crack of salt & pepper.
- Allow to marinade and cool down for at least an hour.
- Once marinaded, cut the legs apart to make 8 easy strips to braai. Place back in the marinade until ready to cook.
- On a medium to high heat, braai the octopus for roughly 4 minutes per side.
- Remove from the fire and squeeze over the juice of a whole lemon as well as some more seasoning should it require.
- Serve with my lemon mayonnaise if desired.

Brilliant service and quality
Fast service and you get what you ordered. Quality! Thank you! I am sure to recommend you to everyone I know.
What a breath of fresh air to receive such an amazing service. The quality was amazing and will definitely be using you guys again.
Ordered 1000hrs and by 1200hrs the same day I have my delivery. Greenfish just seem to do it right. Well done. The octopus is superb and used for salads and curry. Fantastic. Thank you
Perfectly cut , frozen and packed. It was a pleasure to eat
Great quality and value
Quick delivery and excellent quality, as always. One defrosted, the tentacles are super-clean and need only a quick rinse before use. Don't be squeemish - give these a try with an inventive recipe, be it (pressure) cooked and then grilled/BBQd or cooked and the marinated!
Fast delivery and good quality

Excellent delivery experience with delicious product. Unfortunately did not obtain new client discount. Website need to be made more user friendly for this
Wonderful meaty octopus
Thanks for octopus hands that were meaty, tender and delivered same day. Caught recently they were delicious!
Fresh and fast
I ordered salmon and squid and the products arrived beautifully packaged and freshly frozen. The portions were generous and when they say next day delivery, they mean within 24 hours!
I bought 2 kg's of the octopus legs.As per the advertised recipe i cooked one pack of the legs in salted water and placed it in the fridge once cooked with the intention to continue with the recipe the following day. Unfortunately the ockie legs never saw the remainder of the recipe.My goodness,it was delicious just like that.The remaining 1kg will be made into octopus caspachio and having made that previously i know it will be great.
Happy with order
Despite not receiving the first-time buyer discount, as advertised the previous day and the many sold-out items during the festive season, the online ordering process went flawless. A easy-to use, up-to-date website made ordering special dishes a pleasure. The delivery was same-day and the product still frozen. The quality of the product was above expectations. Good to know Green Fish
What a treat!!
The experience was amazing and the service top! I will keep on recommending Greenfish, the product is super fresh and very tasty! It’s the best quality fish I’ve found in South Africa!!
