ISO Octopus in garlic sauce

Any one have a recipe that doesn't include tomatoes?

I've googled it but haven't found a recipe that doesn't want a
can of tomatoes thrown in.


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

Thanks, T

I haven't bought any octopus yet... I'm waiting to see if I can find a recipe.

Are the smaller ones more tender??

pds, i have a good spanish recipe for garlic sauce. it's originally to be used with shrimp, but it should work for octos.

1/2 cup evoo
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 cup coarsely chopped white onion
4 large cloves of garlic

blend until just smooth. marinate fish with this paste at least 1 hour.

add another 1/8 cup evoo to a deep frying pan over high heat, and quickly fry until just opaque throughout.

i guess with octopus, it would be important that the pieces were roughly even sized so it all cooks the same. just a minute or two.

don't know about more tender, would think so. do a little batter and fry. if they are huge u will need to put in uniform pieces i think.the baby one are perfect for this. though i have not seen them in market. maybe a fish market?


babeno w those smiles are fun. lol

did you have a look at the thread that BBQ Mikey started a little while ago? Think there were a few recipes in there. Can't remember if they had tomatoes in or not.
