Braised Octopus with Smoky Paprika recipe | Morrisons

Octopus is simpler to cook than you think. Buy it whole or get our Morrisons fishmonger to clean and cut into pieces for you, before making this delicious recipe. Morrisons chef Richard maximises its flavour with smoky paprika and chickpeas (swap those for pasta or potatoes if you prefer).
