I want to make Greek style grilled octopus during the holidays. Can anyone tell me where to find a whole fresh octopus? Had this in Chicago a few months ago and was to die for.

    Hi, Tom:

    Never bought it whole (you want beak and head???), but I'd try Mutual Fish (Rainier Valley), Fresh Fish (Ballard), and Uajjimaya (ID). If that doesn't produce, call Branzino and ask where they get theirs. Failing that, I can show you how to make a lure for a he'e...

    Aloha,
