Maybe it’s me that’s a bit squeamish. Or perhaps I’m just a picky eater. But I can still remember the shock of seeing this in a supermarket refrigerator.
Despite being a bit surprised, I convinced myself that after being cooked it would look a lot different. The same way in which English food generally looks nothing like the fish or animal it came from. Needless to say I was wrong. Very wrong.
Cooked octopus looks exactly like it does when it’s alive. Except of course it doesn’t move so much, and its, err, been cut into smaller pieces. Something like this.
Fancy a bite?
