    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 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.

  • 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.

    GEAR USED : Demersal trawl

    SUPPORTING LOCALS : Yes

    DISTANCE TRAVELLED : 50km

  • 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.

          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!

          Octopus hands

          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

          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.
