Paprika Octopus

  • 3 Octopus <Cleaned> (c.200g each)
  • 1 large Potato
  • 2 tsp Capers
  • 1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2x 25g Butter
  • 25ml Extra Virgin Rape Seed Oil

Cut the tentacles off from the octopus. You can keep the hoods in the freezer and use them in Paella or a seafood linguine. Cut the tentacles into pairs and leave to one side for a second.

In a bowl mix together the paprika, garlic, salt and pepper and leave to one side. Peel the potato and cut into small chunks and boil until mashable.

Mash the potato and add 25g of the butter to the mash along with the capers. Mix it all together and leave to one side in the same pan with a lid on to keep warm.

In the microwave melt the other 25g of butter and then add to the paprika mix along with the oil. Finally in a wok in a little oil stir fry the octopus for about 2 minutes. Add the paprika and oil mix and coat the tentacles.

Put the mash onto a plate and top with the paprika coated octopus. Grab a knife and fork and dive in!
