Octopus with baked potatoes
Step 1/ 4
- 1 octopus
Boil the octopus for 45-50 in a pot that can cover the octopus with water and you can put a lid on. To have a tender octopus leave it cool down in its own water for 30min without the lid. Do not take it out right after boiling because it will become gummy.
Step 2/ 4
Peal the potatoes and cut them in shapes you like put them in a baking tray, add 2table spoon of olive oil and mix to coat them. Season them with salt&pepper and put them in the oven for 35-40 min @ 180C.
Step 3/ 4
Once the octopus cooled down, take it out and remove the head leaving only the tentacles, dive it in half 4/4 tentacles and start cutting them one by one. Dry them on paper to remove the eater and put them in a tray. Add on top of them olive oil (will make them crispy) and season with salt and pepper. Roast them on a high heated pan 3-4 at the time (do not crowd the pan) 2 min each side. Remove and let it rest for 5 min.
Step 4/ 4
Add 2/3 octopus tentacles with potatoes on a plate drizzle some olive oil on the octopus and fresh lime.
Enjoy your meal!
