Octopus is rich in taurine, minerals, and amino acids, helping absorb and decompose hematopoietic tonics (supplementing blood and strengthening organs).

Also, it has low fat content, so it’s perfect for diet food. Octopus is effective not only for humans but also for animals, so they used to feed three or four octopus to cows that are important in strength.

This time, I would like to introduce two recipes for eating more chewy octopus in season.

Step 1. How to distinguish delicious octopus.

(1) Check your eyes.

It’s good to have octopus eyes sticking out.

(2) Check your body.

It should be black on the outside and white on the inside, and red is not good. It is better to have no foreign substances on the surface of octopus and to have thick flesh.

(3) Check the straw.

The adsorption of the straw should be strong, and it should be hard when touching the straw.

(4) Check the size.

Octopus tastes bad even if it is too large or small, and the medium size tastes the best.

Step 2. How to prepare octopus.

How to prepare octopus that makes the texture good! Shall we find out together? First, flip the head of the octopus and remove the intestines, and then take off the eyes of the octopus. Turn the leg of the octopus over and remove the mouth of the octopus and separate the body and leg of the octopus. Put a tablespoon of flour in the separated body and legs, rub them, and wash them thoroughly under running water.

*Flour removes foreign substances and slipperyness attached to octopus.

TIP. Rubbing and rinsing the trimmed octopus with salt will make the octopus more firm and reduce the fishy smell.

Step 4. The efficacy of octopus.

Octopus is rich in essential amino acids and minerals that synthesize proteins and produce stamina, which is good for improving metabolism. It also contains acetylcholine, which stabilizes the mind and body and relieves stress and insomnia. It also contains a lot of taurine and minerals, which is good for energizing and recovering from physical strength and fatigue. It is also said that octopus has a lot of iron, which is effective in improving anemia.

However, octopus is a seafood with a cold property, so if a cold person consumes a large amount, it can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea. It would be better if you adjust the amount according to your constitution.
