Octopus – SASSI Orange List for trawl fishing
St Francis Bay, South Africa 34°12’23’’ S 24°50’05”E
A classic dive at Seal Point. A proper arm wrestle with this big octopus which I almost lost. He lost a leg which was swiftly carried off by a fish. The ocean is alive here !
I cooked this octopus in tomato, garlic & chilli. Served with spaghetti & Pane di Mare ciabatta & a glass of Strandveld Sauvignon Blanc. Buon appetito !
