Forget the rubbery purple stuff they serve in sushi restaurants. This octopus has a tender texture complemented by a hint of smokiness. Savor it in small bites by dipping the white flesh in the tangy lemon jam served beside it. The small appetizer feels hearty, especially when paired with fingerling potatoes, because the earthy flavor is unlike anything else you’ve tasted.
