For a quality seafood experience and maximum freshness, we recommend defrosting and using as soon as possible. If the superfrozen meat is not going to be consumed immediately, it can be stored in a conventional freezer for approximately up to 2 weeks before losing quality.
Place superfrozen product in cold water for 15 to 30 minutes, until thawed. Remove the portion from the plastic, pat dry and wrap with our white butcher paper provided. Cut and enjoy within 24 hours.
Our pre-cooked Tako (Octopus) is wild caught off of the coast of Spain, where they are considered a delicacy, with a delicate and slightly sweet flavor and texture, similar to sea scallops. Our pre-cooked Spanish Octopus or Tako is perfect for stews, served over salads, grilled, or served as sushi.
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
