Tasting notes: Smoky, briny and succulent (pun definitely intended), smoked octopus is a special treat. It’s also notably been named by Monterey Bay Seafood Watch as a ‘Best Choice’ sustainable species.
Serve it up: Pair it with a fine whiskey, or dressed with olive oil and lemon for an amazingly smoky Pulpo a la Gallega. Like many of Wildfish Cannery offerings, they recommend first enjoying straight from the can, but then please let your curiosity get the better of you.
