Octopus (also known as calamari when deep fried) is similar to squid. It has a meaty, slightly chewy texture. Octopus is high in protein, low in fat and carbohydrate, and rich in vitamins and Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Octopus should be thoroughly cleaned before cooking it. Slowly cooked octopus tends to be tenderer than octopus cooked using rapid cooking methods, which can encourage the octopus to become tougher and more chewy in texture.
