Octopus Salad



What I made for lunch today. Recipe below -

This is a really simple dish - the key is to properly cook the octopus, which means using enough water and slowly submerging the beast to keep a boil up, and leaving it in the pot for about an hour once the cooking is done (cooking time will depend on the size of the octopus). I like the skin off, and it should slide off very easily - be careful not to slide the suckers off the tentacles.

I added some rough chopped boiled potatoes, finely sliced celery, a bit of diced onion, hot pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and plenty of good olive oil. Eaten at room temperature with some bread, it was gone in a flash.
