Galician (pronounced Galithian) sauce is onion and paprika. These are delicious straight from the tin, gently warmed, or in myriad other ways. One of our favorites is to serve them over/with roasted potatoes.

    Delicious and tender. Great texture. delicate octopus flavor. Was a fantastic pairing for cheese and apples. Sauce was delightful and I just dunked my crackers in it. Pricey to eat regularly, but this exceeded my expectations for my first canned octopus experience. I love octopus and was worried about the texture after canning. So good!!!

    What are we even doing here? Conservas de Cambados comes out swinging with an absolutely delicious canned octopus. Mostly small tentacles, with a few larger ones thrown in for fun. This octopus has a definite “fatty” almost melt in your mouth texture compared to some of the others I have tried (Matiz, La Conchalita (squid, but still). Worth getting! I thew this in a pan in its own oil and put on top of a delicious balsalmic salad. Must try!

    This was my first try of tinned octopus and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT. I made some crispy fried sunchokes and sauteed shallot/garlic with the oil from the tin, deglazed with a small amount of white wine, and then added the octopus at the end to warm through. Absolutely superb. The octopus had a nice chew but was still tender and the sweetness of the sunchokes complimented it really well. Delightful!

    So this is my first time trying anything other than sardines and being of Mediterranean descent I was quite pleased and then I screwed it up. I ate a few pieces right out of the can and they were delicious and really about as tender as you can get with octopus so props to the canning factory for getting that part right. I had a relationship with a Puerto Rican woman and she had made octopus with rice and beans several times so I tried it and that’s where I went wrong….I believe the cooking toughened them up and they ended up being chewy but still tasty. The oil in the can was perfect for the toasting of the rice. I feel bad I ruined 2/3rds of the can but I won’t make that mistake again….I will definitely be eating just like they are next time.

    Was not a fan of this. I thought the sauce made the octopus veryyy fishy tasting. Texture was nice and it was cooked well but wouldn’t buy again.

    One of my preferred Octopus tins. Good mixture of thick pieces and longer tentacles. Wonderful straight from the tin on sea salt crackers!
