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 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.

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.
Octopus was great!
Fish was delivered on time and packed very professionally. Had the octopus so far and it was delicious. Will definitely be ordering again
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!!
Beautiful octopus, really easy to prepare and a true delight!
Best service and quality
The best seafood every time, highly recommended
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.
Scrumptious! A first time cooking octopus - definitely will buy again.
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.
The Octopus was so Good. Thank You guys
Good quality and value.
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.
