Yes many times, don't really care for the baby octopus though. Texture thing.

Octopus is excellent however I’ve yet to attempt preparing it myself . HEB has whole octopus fairly often but wife and kid wouldn’t try it if I made it. 🤦‍♂️

Living in Hawaii in the Navy I got to eat it all the time. Called Tako in Japanese or Hawaiian, tako poke is great. Lots of sesame seed oil, green onions and crackers!

Local ladies would buy every one I brought in from diving, and that paid for more air fills on my tanks. smile

I prefer squid.

Large octopus is great. I just don't like the babies. Reminds me of spiders, ain't eating that.

I like it pretty much anyway it’s prepared.

Conch is another great option for ceviche

Used to eat it often when we lived in Spain, fried, served with fried sliced potatoes.

Never had octopus, but I guess I would try it if it was prepared for me.

I've had the baby octopus whole. It wasn't terrible but not something I'll seek out either.

Never seen big octopus anywhere but those little ones I ain't touching. Like skinner said, looks like little spiders. No crickets or grasshoppers going in my mouth either.

We were in Hawaii years ago when a huge native Hawaiian(~400+ pounds) came out of the surf with a very large octopus on a spear.

We asked to take his picture but he didn’t speak English. He thought we wanted part of his catch and he started to cut off a leg/tentacle. eek2s

FWIW, my brother was fond of smoked octopus. 🐙 Disgusting stuff. 🤮
