    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.

    CONTENTS

    1x Octopus Hands Pack (approx. 0.85kg - 1kg per box)

  • Instructions

    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.

  • Eco rating

    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.

    ECOSYSTEM IMPACT : Medium low

    GEAR USED : Demersal trawl

    SUPPORTING LOCALS : Yes

    DISTANCE TRAVELLED : 50km

    DOLPHIN / TURTLE IMPACT : Low

    REPRODUCTION POTENTIAL : High

  • Fishwife Recipes

    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

    Preparation:

    1. Place the octopus in a pot on the stove and cover with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 45 minutes.
    2. 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.
    3. Allow to marinade and cool down for at least an hour.
    4. Once marinaded, cut the legs apart to make 8 easy strips to braai. Place back in the marinade until ready to cook.
    5. On a medium to high heat, braai the octopus for roughly 4 minutes per side.
    6. Remove from the fire and squeeze over the juice of a whole lemon as well as some more seasoning should it require.
    7. Serve with my lemon mayonnaise if desired.

          Packaging of Octopus Hands

          First time GF client - And quite happy with my order…Properly sealed in & labelled, real good packaging, only x1 comment i have, is to perhaps have the option to chose that the entire portion be packed in x2 separate packs, esp. for single user - due to items being frozen , the x1 pack is quite large in size for a single serving, meaning entire pack has to be utilized - once defrosted.

          Wooohhhoooo!!!

          I love Octopus, especially seared on the braai after cooking (all of which is real easy, although there may be different approaches). This product is excellent (no matter how you prefer preparing it). Full of flavour and highly recommended.

          Top Class Meal

          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.

          Best Octopus out there!

          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.

          Fantastic!

          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!

          So fresh!

          The octopus was absolutely delicious! It smelled ocean fresh when I opened the pack after leaving it to defrost overnight. My fussy eater asked for more octopus - an instant favorite in our family!

          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!

          What a treat!

          The octopus was so gorgeous! It had a ocean fresh scent when I opened the bag and was beautifully cleaned - the part I was not keen on! I used it in a salad and it was so good! Will definitely order again!
