About to broil an octopus


I'm about to braise & broil an octopus - bought about a pound of tentacle down at Granville Island. Wish me luck, will have photos of the finished product.

(Especially ironic because of the "cute" octopus video? Perhaps - they're still damn tasty)

Update: OK, worked out pretty well. A little chewy, but delicious. Bought it at The Salmon Shoppe on Granville Island - had them hack off one big tentacle for Rachael and I (Rachael had fun taking some close up shots before I cooked it).

Here's the picture of the finished product:
