1 1/2 pounds

Great taste and very flexible. I had a bag of frozen mixed seafood (shrimp, octopus, squid, muscles, etc.), and I wanted to do a nice soup with it. I used this recipe, and it turned out very good. I would love to try it with fresh octopus.
I have a large pot that is also good for frying, so I poured the liquid and seafood into the fried vegetables. I think it really brought out the flavor.
Maybe I did something wrong, I followed the instructions though.It,s like fishy water and the octopus is like trying to chew a pencil eraser. Won't try this again.
My husband and I love Octopus and shrimp. This receipe is great. Tried it with family and they loved it. It has a lot of flavor.
I had a pack of surimi, baby shrimp, squid, and octopus that I pulled out of the freezer to make this. This made a good base. I made a couple substitutions: 2 quarts low sodium chicken broth for the water, 1/4 cup green chiles for the pasilla chile peppers, For seasoning, I used flax oil, minced garlic, chipotle red pepper, parsley, and salt.I left out the potatoes... Awesome good. This was a great find for a seafood lover. Thanks for sharing!
I added Cilantro to the stock and it tasted even better! The soup base was good but needed a little pizzaz.
Soup turned out great. I subbed the octopus for calamari. (octopus would of been great, but the crowd I was serving was alittle timid).
I had a bag of mixed seafood and a bag of imitation crabmeat that I got on clearance at Target. I was looking for a recipe to use it and came across this one. Turned out wonderfully! I didn't have any celery so I used celery salt, and used both fresh and stewed tomatoes. I also added a little comino powder to give it a little smokiness. I will definitely be making this again! It was so easy, so fast, and so delicious!
I have made this recipe five times and it still is good. I added muscles, squid, and cutter fish. No matter how you make it this is a very good recipe. Thanks
