Nowadays, it is becoming a popular food ingredient to make other dishes. When it is steamed, it tastes like lobster. Preparation is a little difficult, but after removing the shell, the meat has a similar texture as shrimp.

Octopus, Jeju’s Iconic SeafoodOctopus is considered a nourishing form of seafood. In particular, it is an excellent nutritious food for treating a cold during the change of seasons. Unlike octopus caught from the mudflats of the southwest seashore, Jeju’s octopus is easy to clean as the sucking discs have little foreign matter and the meat feels soft and plump. The most common way of eating the octopus is when it is parboiled. Slicing according to the texture will provide a nutty flavor. It is also used as an ingredient for salad, sushi, skewered dishes, and stir-fried dishes.
