If you are lucky enough live near a fish market that sells octopus, by all means buy a couple for using in this simple recipe. First the octopus is simmered with onion until just tender, then it's briefly baked with potatoes (here cooked in a microwave), bell pepper, garlic, and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve as a starter course, sprinkled with cilantro, and with crusty bread for sopping up the juices.

Ingredients

  • 2 octopus (medium)
  • 1 onion
  • 6 potatoes
  • 6 bay leaves
  • salt
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves (sliced)
  • 250 milliliters olive oil
  • 2 stalks cilantro (chopped)

Directions

  1. Cook octopus and onion in a pan of boiling water.
  2. Cook until onion is tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Scrub potatoes.
  4. Make 2 lengthwise shallow cuts in each potato.
  5. Place 1/2 bay leaf in each cut.
  6. Roll potatoes in salt and place them in a microwave-safe container.
  7. Select maximum power and program 20 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 200°C (approximately 400°F).
  9. When the potatoes are ready, remove them from the container, shake off excess salt and mash slightly in a cloth.
  10. Place the potatoes in a baking pan with the octopus.
  11. Season octopus with a pinch of salt.
  12. Add the sliced peppers and garlic.
  13. Drizzle with olive oil.
  14. Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes to cook pepper.
  15. To serve, remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro.
