    Octopus is an incomparable treat. I love it on the barbecue, in a salad or in tomato sauce. For many, cooking octopus may seem daunting - but I assure you, it couldn't be easier. Serve this dish with chips or with rice.

    A fantastic way to prepare octopus. It's simmered in a well-seasoned tomato and red wine sauce. Serve over fresh pasta and crusty fresh bread, if desired.

    This French recipe for octopus salad is fresh, tasty and perfect for summer. Season with garlic and lemon to your liking. Be sure to get fresh octopus from a proper fishmonger and have him take out the beak and ink (unless you want to use the ink for cooking)!
