I really love Octopus cooked in coconut milk. It is one of my favorite dish. It's a long time already since I last ate it. When the octopus is cooked , its color looks like pink. Octopus could be cooked in different ways too. Eating octopus has health benefits . It has large quantities of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. It contains very low amounts of saturated fats. t is is actually filled with healthy protein and iron. Do you like cooked Octopus too?

I don't know that octopus are being fried. But I think it is delicious if it is fried.

I've never tried octopus. I don't think I would like to try though. But good to hear it's healthy protein and has iron, low fat!

I only tasted once and never ate again, it's hard to chew. At first IO thought it's like a rubber band, cannot be chewed. Can it be overcooked to soften it?

If it is overcooked it is really hard to chew. There is a proper way of cooking it which I don't know too. I just wanna eat it but don't know how to cook it... lol

Many people really don't like it. Maybe because of how its appearance.

i don't like octopus because it is very hard to chew not like squids that can be easily to chew. maybe there is another method in preparing it that can be easily and soft to eat.

I used to eat that but lately, my allergy to seafoods is getting worse that is why I try to avoid these. My mother used to cook it like "dinakdakan", boiled then add some calamansi, pepper, onions and chili pepper.

Squids are smaller than octopus. But they almost have the same taste.
