Octopus can be very tough and bland, but when you cook it sous vide it will be tender and flavorful. Sliced thinly as carpaccio is a great way of serving sous vide octopus, as it looks nice and makes the octopus appear even more tender. You can prevent the slices from falling apart by using an enzyme called transglutaminase, which as sold under the brand name Activa. It will still be great without using the enzyme, just not look as pretty.
