Octopus in Olive Oil, prepared and packed by hand. These pieces of pulpo (octopus) are moist and delicate and preserved in just olive oil and salt to retain and enhance the natural flavors of the sea. Excellent directly out of the tin, you can also lightly heat the octopus and add a touch of piment d'Espelette or paprika to taste for a simple pintxo.
Featured on The Feed Podcast (2015 James Beard award-winner for best podcast) from Chef Rick Bayless and 13-time James Beard award winner food journalist Steve Dolinsky.
As Rick says, "I love the chewiness of that octopus. It’s chewy in the right way, not in the wrong way, it’s not like rubbery or anything, it offers a little bit of resistance so it doesn’t just melt in your mouth. It would be just wonderful, I want to go home and turn these into simple things that I can put with some bread. I’m thinking about that octopus I want to put a little bit of red chili on it, and perhaps a little bit of mayonnaise to mix in with it, some fresh herbs. Oh my god, it would be so good."
Or, as one customer suggests, "Sauté it in its oil until crispy. Preferably non-stick. Serve with anything, like charred romaine, black olive puree, piment d'Espelette, and shaved baguette croutons. Most every restaurant in NYC has octopus on the menu in that style. Great product."
