Sorry, don't think I will be trying it any time soon. While I love calimari, I can't eat squid any other way. I gag on the rubberiness. Can't eat oysters, sardines or herring for the same reason - I just gag.

So, someone else can have my share of octopus!

Like PDSwife said, octopus (pulpo) is plentiful on the coast of Mexico and very yummy. Very good in ceviche or a mixed seafood (mariscos) soup. For my taste, I like it to be thoroughly cleaned of the sort of slimy "skin" or outer membrane, especially if it goes in ceviche or soup. If it's grilled, that part sort of melts away. But I have never had it taste tough or rubbery, and it is very common in every fish market, so lots of people eat it here. Except my DH - won't touch it. But then, he doesn't like oysters, either.

Well, if you and your DH ever dine together with me and mine, you and my DH can have all the octopus and oysters you want and your DH and I can enjoy some good non-slimy seafood!

Laurie - c'mon down! You are working so hard, it sounds like you could use a vacation. And the warm weather will be good for your aches and pains!

I put in octopus in gumbo that my husband loves. I always skip eating it; don't like the thought of chewing on tentacles. Ick!

If it gets too rubbery I can't stand it either, but I have never had rubbery herring?? I love it in wine sauce on crackers! I have tried oysters cooked in the shell and fried, yuck both times! I still cant get myself to try em raw yet, but got DW to do it, LOL. I never liked sardines either until ALDI had em for awhile, in the can, in either a mustard sauce, mushroom sauce, or wine sauce. I actually did like them in the mushrooms sauce.

Sorry, Maverick! I didn't mean to imply that all those things are rubbery - I just get the same gag reaction when I try to eat them. Mussels and clams are difficult too. But anchovies, now those I will eat!
