In Japan (and Hawaii, and presumably other places) you can get these dried, smoked octopus snacks best described as octopus jerky. They are meaty, sweet, and delicious, especially tasty with beer. I roughly chopped a handful of them and sautéed them in olive oil until slightly browned, then added corn. I cracked in two eggs and seasoned them with paprika. I dressed it with some leftover lime-tarragon mayo and more paprika. It didn’t look like much, but it was delicious, with a wonderful chew from the octopus. The kind of breakfast that will see you through till dinner.
