  • bought some baby octopie how do I prepare them so i dont die or anything?

    there is about 8 fresh little octopie in this package.

    never bought or had these before so i dont know if i need to do anything special to them, if i can eat them straight up, or what i need to do to make them edible.

    are they fresh or frozen?

    "fish" like that do best either high and fast or low and slow. i'd go slow with either a s/e asian flavor profile (ginger, lemongrass, lime, chili, coconut milk) or mediterranean (tomato, garlic, etc.)
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

            wtf? why would you get sick? why throw away perfectly good food? just quick stir-fry it in a hot pan if you don't know how to cook.

              Most octopus you buy are already cleaned. If yours are not, just go with a method from a reliable cooking site.

              Don't throw them out. You won't get sick. There might just be some not so tasty bits.

              If you are really at the throw them out stage, put one on a fish hook, and throw it out into the ocean. Then cook the striped bass, or whatever you catch.

                i buy fresh squid all the time and it needs cleaning before cooking, but the beak and goop are easily removed.

                  Or just cut the heads off, and scrape off anything that looks like guts, and cut out any beak bits.

                    i just eat the whole thing including all the bitter insides... why not eat the guts and food that the octopus has eaten as well? but it does take time to get used to it.

                    The beaks are hard to chew, i don't know what they are made off, but if its calcium thats good
                    I don't have showers any more
                    But I do bath in the Ocean

                      Don't be such an octopussy! Cook them and eat them... Why should their lives be wasted?

                          Yes. Unless he was referring to an octopus pie. Mmmm, pie.

                            We eat those little baby octopodiformes all the time here in Seoul.

                            Wash them, pan fry in some grass fed butter till they turn slightly purple. Nothing to it...
