Freshly caught Cornish Octopus. A little larger than its squid and cuttlefish relatives, it will reward long, gentle cooking times with an exceptionally flavoursome, tender result. Supplied cleaned and gutted, with beak removed.
Please note that, because fish naturally vary in size, we will always adhere to the pack weights given for ‘whole’ fish. At times, one large whole fish will be enough to make up the weight, at other times it may be two or more smaller fish; so, although the number of fish supplied may change between orders, the weight received will always remain the same. Please be aware that a description of a fish as ‘boned’ means that, although the fishmongers will have removed the bones to the best of their ability, we cannot guarantee that any piece of fish will be entirely bone-free.
Our fishing vessels work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and operate in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme. They keep us well topped up most days with a selection of fresh fish and shellfish, and a catch can often be on its way to the Greendale farm shop within hours of leaving the sea. If we can’t catch it ourselves, we source only from trusted suppliers with standards as high as our own. The fish available may vary, depending on the season, but a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter. From whole fish to fillets, live lobsters to shrimp, our wide selection is sold in a choice of portion sizes and prepared for your convenience by our skilled fishmongers.
Most of the meat on an octopus is found in its eight tentacles – like squid, the ink is also edible, and can be used to add flavour (and colour) to pasta.
To remove the risk of any toughness, it’s worth tenderising octopus meat before cooking by simmering it for about an hour. After this, it can be grilled or stewed with equally delicious results.
