How to cook octopus technique is a little bit tricky, i thought the octopus should be cook quickly to prevent overcooking like squid, shrimp and mostly other seafoods. Internet searching lead me know that i’m totally wrong about it. Octopus should be cook slowly with a low heat to make it tender but the texture is still chewy and slightly crunchy. Simply quick stir fry will make the octopus rubbery even more, but when you deglaze it with water or stock and continue to cook it slowly  or simmering, the dish could  possibly impressed you.

The other important things is how you clean and prepare the fresh octopus before cooking it.  First you should inspect the octopus head, weather it alrealy got insicion or not;  look for the ink sack weather it’s already removed or not. If you’ve hold the unprepared octopus, you should remove the ink sack in the head first by making an insicion under the eye carefully to prevent puncture the ink sack. After that, you can clean it with running water to remove the slime and then cut it. The head also got a hard part  surround the eye and it should be removed too.

Actually i’ve never seen any fresh octopus in Palembang before. I’ve actually had a pickled baby octopus before, but never even had a chance to cook it.  Even the octopus taste nothing special but similiar to cuttlefish,  i’m so tempting to cook it, so then  i go some reseach and found the octopus online shop and purchased it here. Since i’m not quite understand about quarantine and so many customs regulation and other following procedure when i want to bring it to palembang alive. The seller humbly ask weather i want to purchase it semi dried to make it possibly send in one day without being ruined. Lucky me, i can hold the semi dried octopus now and cook it with spicy chilli and garlic sauce. Btw, i continue  to sun dried the rest of the semi dried octopus to make it last longer and try another recipe with octopus.

  1. Aku pernah mencoba makan octopus ala Portugal sewaktu di Lisbon, hehehe. Rasanya unik ya karena ada kemiripannya dengan cumi-cumi, tapi beda karena dagingnya lebih besaaar, hahaha 😀 . Dan iya tuh, aku agak bingung juga dengan cara masaknya bagaimana; karena kalau dimasak cepat ala cumi-cumi takutnya masih ada bagian yang mentah kan? (karena ukurannya yang besar itu 🙂 ).

  2. Hi Dedy. Octopus is widely eaten in Spain though they are basically only 2 recipes of it (one of which I love!!!) so its nice to see it served in a completely different way. And I like spicy anything, so this must be enak.

  3. Such an exotic dish for me in the land locked states. It looks wonderful.

    PS. you can definitely replace the milk with cream in a cobber.

  4. That is neat that you ordered it online. I never thought to do that with meats. Or at least octopus. The dish sounds really good. I think I would be intimidated to cook it though. You are so adventurous when it comes to cooking!!

  5. This octopus looks and sounds delicious…I yet have to cook octopus at home…unfortunately my husband does not care for it…
    Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe and hope you have a great week ahead 😀

  6. Baru sekali makan gurita, barbekyuan waktu itu.
