Thawing Instructions

For the best results, we highly recommend slowly thawing Spanish Octopus legs in the refrigerator. Simply place the frozen legs in their original packaging or an airtight container in the refrigerator. Allow them to thaw for up to 24 hours.

Once thawed, Spanish Octopus under refrigeration (40°F) should be consumed within 2-3 days.

Grilled

Preheat your stovetop or outdoor grill to medium heat, around 400°F. Drizzle the legs with a bit of oil and season them generously with salt and pepper. Place the legs directly on the grill grates and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side or until they develop a satisfying char. Grilling imparts a delightful smokiness and enhances their natural sweetness.

Pan Seared

Season the legs with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add about 2 teaspoons of oil. Once the skillet is hot, carefully place the legs in the pan. Sear each side for approximately 2-3 minutes or until you achieve a visible char. This method adds a pleasant crispness to the tentacles while maintaining their tenderness.

Ready-to-Eat: (No Cooking Required)

After thawing, you can simply chop or slice them as desired. They are perfect for immediate consumption and can be added to salads, pasta dishes, or served with your preferred dipping sauce. These tentacles offer a delectable seafood experience without the need for further cooking, making them a convenient choice for any meal.
