Looking for fresh or frozen (raw) baby octopus. Any stores or fish markets sell in in Santa Barbara?

      Thanks, the store was awesome and had everything I needed.

      Since this was such a win, any idea where I can buy lardo in Santa Barbara?

        I'm a newbie, but I can think of Whole Foods (they seem to have a pretty good selection of charcuterie/salumi), C'est Cheese and Metropolous (sp?).

        What did you do to the octopus?

          Made one of my favorite NYC dishes, Fusilli with Red Wine Braised Octopus and Bone Marrow (from Marea).
