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)
Your box 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.
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.

Really excellent octopus, easy to prepare and delicious to eat. A very special meal carefully cooked then nicely finished on the grill and drizzled with olive oil, butter, garlic and lemon (two platters in photos show totally quantity of one pack). Unbeatable! Will definitely buy again.
The Octopus was so Good. Thank You guys
Good quality and value.
There's nothing like cleaning your own octopus that makes one appreciate being able to order one that has already been cleaned. Makes life so much easier! Thank you.
The best cleanest freshest tastiest octopus in South Africa
Best Octopus I’ve had here in SA ! Definitely ordering again have already recommended it to friends, ! It’s a must try !
Hi There Ryan This was simply fantastic. Same day delivery and awesome product. I was so impressed that I shared a video of the opening of the box on FB and shared with all to support you guys. Thanks Chris
I love octopus but hate cleaning it. When the product arrived frozen, I could already see that it was perfectly cleaned. I simply thawed it for a few hours, rinsed it once and it was ready to be cooked the way I like it. No fuss and great fresh taste. I'm buying some more soon!
The product was well cleaned and easy to handle. Braised in wine, fish stock, leeks and bay leaves then grilled over the coals. Tasty, tender and succulent!
Was so thankful that the entire process was just a breeze. Easy payment options online. And even all the way put in Wellington, they managed to deliver same day. Products looks good and I can’t wait to give the arms a go
So good, had this on a grill :)
It was amazing. My first time preparing octopus, will definitely order again
Excellent - same day delivery very fresh, superb flavour
