Smoky, firm, and powerful, canned smoked octopus is something you don’t typically see and this tin from Wildfish delivers a memorable, flavorful experience worth repeating.
When the meaty tentacles inside were harvested they were not the intended species targeted, but they still found a home at Wildfish’s cannery to ensure that incidental catch goes to good use rather than being wasted. This responsible approach makes possible a delicious tin of smoky, bite sized morsels that do beautifully tossed in an aglio e olio pasta or as the main protein in a late-night okonomiyaki.
