Instructions

  • Tenderize the octopus by pounding it gently, or by throwing it forcefully into your kitchen sink about 10 times.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the cooking liquid in a pot and bring it to a boil over high heat.
  • Dip the octopus in and out of the boiling liquid quickly three times, then place it in the liquid, return to the boil, and simmer covered for 1 hour.
  • Let the octopus cool in the cooking liquid.
  • Drain the octopus, reserving 1 cup (250 ml) of the cooking liquid for the sauce.
  • Remove and discard the skin from the octopus, cut the tentacles into 1-inch (2 cm) pieces with scissors, and discard the head of the octopus.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over moderate heat and saute the octopus and garlic for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes and serve hot or at room temperature.
