The prepared food for today is san-nakji.
San-nakji is a dish of an alive octopus dipped in either sesame oil or vinagered red pepper paste. The octopus is also often eaten by slicing it into several pieces of chunks and coated with sesame seeds and sesame oil. It’s also called tang-tang (chopped octopus).
There are many people who can’t eat san-nakji well and there are even quite number of people who dislike it because of the wriggly feeling in the mouth. The sliced raw octopus is a food to enjoy eating for me because I like its soft and wriggled texture. The head of sliced raw octopus is very delicious because its aromatic taste is fully spreaded into a mouth when you dip into the sesame oil after parboiling it little and it also has an hard texture. The sliced raw octopus is delicious but the dangerous food. Because the airway into a neck is blocked when you eat whole one, so it is very dangerous to eat whole one.
I recommend to chew it well after making it small pieces for you. Small octopus is very recommendable food for relaxation if you eat it very carefully. It contains little fat and rich taurine, mineral and amino acid, so it helps intake and decomposition of the calcium as well as hematopoiesis and robustness.
Please taste the hard texture of small octopus.
I recommend for it.
