Tenderizing makes the difference.
Our secret is tenderization. Using sea salt, cold water and a tumbler, this natural process is void of any chemicals or additives. Tenderization breaks down the octopus’ muscles causing the octopus to “flower.” Flower octopus is when the tentacles curl up in a flower shape. Gullo tenderized octopus offers a 70 – 90% yield, depending on the size. In comparison, non-tenderized tray octopus only provides a 50% yield rate. Gullo octopus can be stored at -0 degrees and will last up to two years allowing it to be thawed and re-frozen without sacrificing the texture or taste.
Sepia is likened to calamari but much more rich and tender. We tenderize sepia using the same tenderizing technique. The sepia lasts up to two years and can be thawed but not re-frozen. Gullo sepia can be served raw – to enjoy its naturally sweet and delicate flavor, or can be grilled a la plancha for a deeper taste and texture.
Gullo is a one of a kind, family run company selling a one of a kind product line. Try us. You won’t be disappointed. No matter which way you serve it –, raw, boiled, grilled, sautéed, skewered, – we guarantee it won’t be long before you are asking for seconds. No matter how it is eaten, we guarantee product satisfaction.
