octopus question

queue | Mar 11, 2005 09:41 AM

i'm looking at a recipe that recommends freezing and defrosting octopus before cooking in order to tenderize it.

but i think that the octopus in the market is already previously frozen and defrosted. i'm worried that double freezing and defrosting would turn it to mush. or cause it to dry out or something.

should i freeze and defrost, or not? what do you do?
