Can you eat octopus?

Postby yamaasu » Fri Oct 26, 2007 3:04 am

I heard that American cannot eat an octopus lately.

We eat a octopus in my country, so I was very surprised to heard that.

In your country, can you eat an octopus?

Yes of course... Seafood is very typical in my town, and octopus is really appreciated.

Personally I dislike seafood :twisted:

We mix seafood with rice and noodle in my country.
We dip the octopus in soy sauce directly and eat raw.
In your country, how do you eat?

I haven't eat octopus, I think it can't buy from supermarket here. Probably there are some seafood or Japanese restaurant that offer it, but I like to eat home. Seafood(fish) I eat usually smoked or pickled(hering) or fried with eggs.. or canned.

In my country, I can buy an octopus at supermarkets a fishmonger.
And my grandfather is fisherman, so he often gives me an octopus.
When I fried an octopus, I dip a source and mayonnaise, and I eat.

In Japan, I mix seafood with spaghetti.
The seasoning is salt and pepper and soy sauce and olive oil.
I want to make seafood spaghetti because I got an octopus from the grandfather of the fisherman today
