Freestyled this dish and it turned out excellent. Roomates confirmed it.
Used live octopus, live white clams and fresh head-on shrimp. Vokda sauce mixed with fish sauce, sugar, shrimp fat, basil and garlic.

That looks like a good seafood dish but from the title I thought you were going to eat the octopus live. In Korea they call the live octopus Sannakji.

I believe I'll leave my octopus preparation and cooking to a restaurant chef!

I actually ate one of the tenticles while it was moving, but my roomate didnt want to snap a pic. Was very good.

Just besure to chew it before you swallow. People do die with them stuck in there throat.

I had them last year in Busan Korea.

Now did you really use the sword to cut it up or what that just for the photo op? Either way, it is a cool shot!

And I have to say, the dish sounds delicious.

Just thought itll be funny but I did cut the head off with the sword. Used a fillet knife to cut the rest.
