Consider this an easier take on paella, with everything combined in the paella (or other) pan and baked, rather than cooked totally on the stovetop. And, if you've never cooked octopus at home, you'll appreciate how easy (and odorless) it is compared to other types of seafood. Just be sure to ask your fishmonger to clean it thoroughly for you, and avoid overcooking or else it will become too tough to eat (similar to calamari).

Ingredients

  • cooking oil
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 green bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tomato
  • 500 grams octopus (cooked)
  • paprika
  • 250 grams rice
  • fish
  • broth
  • salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.
  2. In a paella pan, saute the onion and the peppers, all finely chopped.
  3. Once cooked, add the tomato.
  4. Slice the octopus and add to the paella pan.
  5. Stir and add the paprika.
  6. Add the rice and cook for a minute, stirring to make sure it absorbs the flavors.
  7. Separately, heat the fish and shellfish broth.
  8. Pour in twice as much broth into the paella pan as there is rice, add salt to taste.
  9. Bake for 18 minutes. The liquid should evaporate.
  10. Let the rice rest for a few minutes and serve.

I put 4 tomatoes and 2 peppers instead of one of each — and it worked really well. Also I had to leave the plate double the time in the oven, I think you should check it out in time by time just in case. A delicious plate — we will repeat for sure!

This recipe is an acquired taste. Our local store didn’t even carry the octopuses I needed. Thankfully, I did find them at a local seafood market. The flavor is really intense and you can definitely taste the octopus. My husband is a seafood fan, but I am not. He loved it, and I thought it was just okay.
