The Smelly Alley Fish Company – Octopus and how to cook it:


Octopus benefits from cooking for at least an hour before you cook as required by your recipe. Find a recipe for octopus in lemon dressing here.  

Or try cooking it like this.  Cut your octopus into 3-cm pieces. Brown the pieces in olive oil in an oven-proof dish, add a tin of tomatoes, some herbs, some very thinly sliced garlic, seasoning, a teaspoon of dark brown sugar, a pinch of cayenne pepper or half a very thinly sliced chilli, then cook in a low oven for about an hour.  Serve sprinkled with lots of chopped parsley, and some crusty white bread. Baby octopus are good cooked in this recipe.
