Octopus: Love It or Hate It?

Octopus: Love It or Hate It?

When swimming in the sea, octopus may be slimy and a little creepy, but on the plate, if cooked correctly, it's a delicious treat. It's light and luxurious tossed in a salad or flavorful and filling plated with potatoes. Although I've yet to cook it at home, I always order octopus when it's on a restaurant's menu. How do you feel about it?

Love it! When I was in CA this summer, my friend and I stopped at this place in Malibu. I saw Octopus on the menu and had to have it. It was the best, I have ever had.

I love it. It has a nice texture and flavor. It's especially good in ceviche!

There's a place in Monterey, CA (kinda hole in the wall) that makes it - marinated and oh so tasty!

I've had it cooked very well, and completely overcooked - it's one of those dishes that takes an experienced chef. Not everyone can make it well. My husband loves it, and I will occasionally have a bite, but that is enough for me.
