Seafood Sessions: Giant Pacific Octopus with Sous Chef Mygem
Coquille Fine Seafood
Join us on Thursday, May 30th to learn all about the giant Pacific octopus. Our Sous Chef Mygem will be sharing some interesting facts about this awe-inspiring sea creature, as well as offering some tips on how to prepare and serve it.
The giant Pacific octopus is know for it’s grandeur, intelligence, and is known as a master of camouflage. It is a demersal cephalopod that is locally sourced, typically inhabiting the shallow coastal waters of British Columbia and Alaska. Octopus is a versatile seafood that takes well to both hot and cold preparations. You can find it grilled on our happy hour menu, and served as a carpaccio on our lunch and dinner menus.
Every Thursday during happy hour we’ll be featuring a different Ocean Wise seafood or shellfish and we’ll have our local fishermen and women, shellfish farmers or our kitchen team on hand to share some stories and tricks of the trade over a drink and some happy hour snacks.
