This is a great little recipe and I promise I am going to say that for all my recipes.
Octopus is a tasty mollusc with 8 feet as its name suggest to all of you latin speakers!
Octopus is cheap to buy, you can find it at the fishmongers and in supermarkets like Morrisons and like every other fish it’s rich in proteins, this means no fat and no carbohydrates. Good news for those of you who care about fat.
Let’s get to the recipe
1) boil the octopus for 1 hour (before you drop the octopus completely into the water, just put in the tentacles and pull them out for a second, this will give them the classic curly shape). The water must be added with a big spoon of salt and chillies
2) Take the octopus out of the water,
3) Chop the octopus on a chopping board and dress with extra virgin olive oil, thin slices of fresh chillies, thyme,
On the side you can can serve peeled and boiled boiled potatos or even mix the octopus and the potato chops together
Trick: buy fresh octopus and freeze. Defrost it in few minutes in the microwave.
