I couldn't find any octopus...so I used shrimp and scallops.

I don't think my garlic was strong enough, very very mild flavor ( and I love garlic)
so at the end of cooking time I added white wine, lemon juice and some butter. I needed a little flavor boost. Next time I'll just use more garlic or stronger garlic.

Thanks again Bucky.

You're wife is really lucky to have you
cooking for her!!

Octopus is a fickle to find sometimes. When in doubt I sub Calamari.

You might want to try Goya's canned octopus products.

I believe most all canned products are cooked at least enough to sterilize.

Maybe just a good recipe for a garlic sauce would work... If you could also tell me how to cook the octopus??

Thanks, T
Hi Pdswife,
You will need to cook the octopus first before putting in the sauce. the octopus may take a couple of hours or even 4-5 hours for a large (4/5lb) one.
The octopus may be very, and I stress very, gently simmered in water. Alternatively, place the octopus in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove, place in an ovenproof dish, cover and cook in the oven 200C/400F/Gas 6 until tender. Make the garlic sauce separately, cut the octopus into bite sized pieces and reheat gently in the sauce.

The eminent food writer, Harold McGee has an excellent article on cooking octopus on his web site: The Curious Cook. The particular article is one from the column he writes for the New York Times and I would urge you to read it.

Hope this helps,
Archiduc
