    octopus is a very intelligent creature, and science has proven it has a level of awareness.

    why are we killing them? Do we really need to eat them to survive? or it's just a luxury

    I LOVE Spanish food! There is nothing better than being on holiday on the coast in Spain and eating fish in a restaurant that they've just brought in that day from the Harbour, and sipping on a lovely Rioja.
    I love your attitude of buying decent wine to cook with, you're completely right. I would never buy and cook with wine I'm not prepared to drink. Don't get me wrong, I don't use a £30 of Bordeaux to cook with, but I wouldn't use anything less than £5, either.
    This looked lovely!

    406 downvotes. Hmmm. We're still going to make it. Maybe the downvotes are the people who tried the recipe. 😎 Did the parsley have to come from Italy? Mine is from France. We're only 90 minutes' drive from Spain, but the border is closed…..

    You silly, silly man. Why get frozen octopus from Spain when you live in San Francisco, and you can get fresh from a fish monger? I live in Tacoma, Washington, right on Puget Sound, and I know it can be found fresh.

    I should become a Youtube Chef.. I feel like 99% of channels make things more complicated than they really are.
    OCTOPUS: Grill or Boil until it looks done.. Throw it into some Butter, Garlic, Salt & Pepper.. Add spices you like. ENJOY!
