Introduction

Octopus is a favorite dish for many people, with its crispy and sweet texture. It can be prepared in various delicious ways, such as grilled, steamed, stir-fried with sweet and sour sauce, or as a salad. However, one of the challenges that many people face when cooking octopus is how to prevent it from becoming tough. Don’t worry, the following instructions will help you handle this seafood quickly and easily.

Preparing the Octopus

To prepare the octopus, you will need the following ingredients: salt, ginger, and guava leaves.

Steps:

  1. First, choose a reliable shop that supplies octopus. (Note: If you don’t know how to choose, you may end up with octopuses that are past their prime or have been soaked in water, resulting in a loss of sweetness.)
  2. Use a knife to cut off the lower part of the octopus, separating the body from the head.
