Fisherman’s Pride® Octopus is 100% all natural, wild caught, and fully cleaned. Imported from Spain, they are flash frozen within hours of harvest to preserve their freshness and sweet flavor. Fished off the coast of the Canary Islands, the warmer waters yields a sweeter-tasting species than those found in Asian waters. Supervised under HACCP guidelines and the strictest of quality control for consistency, excellence and value with every pound purchased.
Tumbled to Perfection
Immediately after catch, our Octopus are “tumbled”, using a proprietary method in which sea salt and ice water are washed over the Octopus, tenderizing the meat and giving it a briny bite. To complete the tenderization process, they are then flash frozen to ensure optimum quality and freshness. Unlike any other seafood, the freezing and tenderizing processes loosen the meat creating a truly unique texture.
Fisherman's Pride® Octopus has a delicate flavor that’s slightly sweet and like that of a sea scallop. In fact, the flavor of Octopus can be so mild that it’s hard to dislike. A favorite for sushi, it is also wonderful when boiled, fried, simmered in stews, coated lightly with olive oil and grilled, and even smoked.
