Octopus Curry for Lunch-w/Pics

Post by Bill Barilko » Fri Jun 02, 2017 10:06 pm

Found some Octopus for sale a few weeks ago so I froze it up and decided to do a curry-this recipe appealed so I used it as something of a template.

Now de leg!

Image
Not the easiest stuff to slice take takes a razor sharp knife and an agile wrist

Image
Various ingredients obviously

Image
Just the start

Image
Fully Completely

Image
Done now-cooked Potato just added

Image
As it hit the table

The mystery ingredient

Even though the package says Bay Leaves that's not what these are in fact they are leaves of the Cinnamon tree and while they bear a passing resemblance to the European Bay tree they are nothing alike in flavour.

So how was it?

Good not great; I added Turmeric in addition to too much Saffron and while the sugar & Lime juice used to finish helped there was residual bitterness-not sure what the Cinnamon leaves added if anything as always finishing with Smoked Salt was a good idea.

I was a tad disorganised and forgot to take pics of the Octopus chunks boiling in Beer- otherwise it takes too long to simmer them in Curry.

i find this is a bit too many spice ingredients for octopus. maybe for a fish curry it would suit better?

i like octopus galician style or as cevice.

Yes you're probably right.
