Moscardino or Musky Octopus (Elodone spp) is a mollusc species that is very similar to an octopus, but smaller in size, and it has a musky smell when raw, hence the name. A single moscardino weighs around 200 grams and has eight tentacles, with a length of around 14 centimetres. It is possible to distinguish between the two easily because the suckers on the tentacles are on one line on the moscardino and on two lines on the octopus.
- The meat is tender and tasty. It is delicious and ideal for preparations such as cold salads, fried, grilled, or stewed, to prepare tasty soups. it is a wonderful choice with pasta that will transport you to the Mediterranean with just one bite.
- It is fished in the Mediterranean Sea, especially on the Adriatic coast, although it is present in the Atlantic Ocean as well and found at a depth of max 400 meters on sand benches, quite the opposite of the Octopus that prefer rocks.
- Try it to prepareÂ Alla Luciana, from Campania . It is the same recipe as Polpo - Octopus with tomato, garlic, and chilli pepper.
