This is a restaurant tip to the cooks of the Seychelles: do something more creative with your squids and octopus!

I have noticed two main uses of these wonderful sea creatures:
1) Bait for fishing (ouch! What a destiny)
2) Octopus salad. Squid, too.

Now, what if you knocked this octopus or squid about a few times, hanged it out to dry and soften a little, and then put it whole or in pieces on the grill, the BBQ or the frying pan ? even in the wok or deep fry pan?
Throw in some lemon; spice it up as dry or sauce curry ? or single spice variety - or just naturelle. Crush peppercorns over it, herbal salts, optional lemon sauce, fresh lemon juice or even soy sauce.
Eat it like that or add breadfruit chips, potato chips (nnaaaa?), rice and a mellow, not too distinct salad.
The restaurant that does this to my palate will get a 5-star review from my side and the cook will immediately have my vote for the presidential election. Given that the price of the octopus is right.
If there is a need for octopus education, please visit Greece, but go beyond the batter-and-deep-fry lessons.
