“Fish are friends, not food”
Oh wait, what am I saying. Fish can be food. Tako (octopus), although not a fish, can be food, too! If you missed my last post How to Tenderize Tako (Octopus), check it out now if you’re going to be catching your own tako or buying it fresh.
Miso soup is a Japanese savory soup with fermented soybean paste base. It is usually served with tofu, green onions, and seaweed.
Here is a recipe that utilizes most of the tako, just the beak is the only part discarded! It’s easy, quick, and ono (Hawaiian word for delicious)! The gills, eyes, liver, even the reproductive organs are edible (Andrew Zimmern would eat it)! Many of the ingredients for this recipe can be found in the Asian aisle at your supermarket.
