Default Octopus

Anybody do this at home ?

I've really become a fan, but the one place that has it on the menu is not somewhere I want to eat often ($$)...

We've done it at home once with a smallish one, maybe 16-18 inches, and were a bit disappointed. We followed the recipe, but .... We decided next time we went to our go to fancy place that we'd try octopus if it was on their specials menu, since it's something they don't serve all the time. And we don't go there too often as we usually drop a bundle when we do since we go all out with 4-courses and get a nice bottle of wine too.

We did buy some tiny baby octopus once at an Italian market, but when we got it home and opened it, whew, the ammonia smell about knocked us down, so that went in the garbage.

I also bought a tray of baby Octopus.... Clerk said they were pre-cooked (Came with a Dipping Sauce, even). I'd planned on shaving some into a salad, but I tried one first and it was like rubber, and tasted, well, like you said,Medtran... Ammonia-like.

Mine too, went into the garbage.
